Default New Omori 45mm gauges - STi, LGT and even 08 WRX/STi

The "N45" line has an updated look with a revised backlighting to better match today's automobile dashboard. The LED lighting has been updated to function in the always on state. Additionally, some car dashboards don't have the always on LED so the gauge wiring allow for the backlighting to come on only when the headlights are switched on. Lastly the N45 line gauges perform the 270 degree calibration sweep on startup. The gauges are all electrical and come with the sending unit, boost hose, t-fitting and wiring harness.

Good news, for 08 WRX and STi owners, we have a gauge that can actually match your gauge cluster.

Here's some pictures:
Elec boost, EGT and elec oil press gauge with the DIN panel in a Subaru center pod for the 04-07 WRX.




02-03 WRX boost


04-07 WRX boost


04-07 STi


05+ LGT


08 WRX/STi EGT gauge

wrxtremeWGN,
Since we posted, we had a number of people have inquired about a 45mm EGT. We can get that manufactured as the tough part is already completed (stepper motor and casing). What are you looking at in terms of placement of that second gauges?
Thanks,
Thaison

i was going to utilize the steering column for both gauges. id personally be interested in a setup just like to boost gauge, w/ the mounting cup.

also if for some reason you dont release the new egt gauges, how different is the lighting between the old egt gauge and the new boost gauge?

wrxtremeWGN - the old EGT gauge would look very different from the new boost. And I just got word that the pricing on the EGT gauge would be $140. We can probably put together a package whereby the second steering column pod is free. So the total for the package would be $290 shipped for the elec boost, elec EGT and two steering column pods.

We're not actually trying to sell it to you at this point but throwing it out there for comment. If we gave them the go ahead today, the ETA on the EGT would be 1.5 months from now.

Thanks,
Thaison

jblaine - thanks for noticing. I've been working on this gauge for 2 months now and took that for granted.

We've gotten a number of questions from current owners of the stock boost gauge that would like to convert over to the Omori electrical boost gauge from the factory boost gauge.

For those converting from a factory boost gauge, you will NOT need to reinstall the t-fitting and run a boost line through the firewall. With this gauge kit, you can just take the boost hose that runs into the factory gauge and connect it to the boost sending unit included with the kit. Then wire the sending unit to the gauge. Follow the included wiring instructions from there and you're done.
Thanks,
Thaison

onefasazn - we estimate that we will get the red needle/green backlight line out first. That will consist of the EGT, oil pressure and possibly oil temp. The red backlight gauges will take longer - probably around the July time frame.

jim1969 - these gauges do not have an option to dim. Due to the fact that it uses LED lighting, dimming these gauges are difficult as reducing voltage will just turn off the lighting after a while. Additionally, these gauge cannot be connected to the dimmer switch of the WRX - i.e. it cannot be wired to the radio harness of the WRX/STi.

Thaison

I just installed my 45mm boost gauge today, I LOVE IT!!

J-Spec was really awesome to work with.

Thanks Again Thaison

i finally got a chance this weekend to hook up my boost gauge and install the pod in my wrx. gauge looks great and the pod fits nicely and doesn't block anything in my view. I saw someone asked if this would dim, i just wanted to say that when i first installed the gauge it was very bright and after consulting my friends father who is an electrician he suggested that i install a potentiometer inline so that i could dim the gauge that way and i could either leave that or measure the resistance at the proper light level and install a resistor inline. Anyone tried this or know if it will work and not harm the gauge itself?

07wrxwag - I am actually researching this myself. I should know the answer but essentially the add on circuit needs to limit the amperage without lowering the voltage. An LED needs a minimum voltage. A potentiometer will actually drop both the voltage AND amperage which won't actually get you to where you would want it. By the time you've racheted up the potentiometer to the point where it starts to dim the LED, the LED will shut down due to a drop in voltage. I've emailed an electrical eng buddy of mine for a low cost Radio shack solution to this. I hope to get something back this week.
Thanks,
Thaison

well last night i headed over to radio shack and i picked up a couple potentiometers, and i had some leds that were set up to run 12 volts. I installed the potentiometer inline using 2 of the posts on the 'pot' and by doing this i was able to dim the led, but it would not shut off even with the 'pot' in the off position. essentially only 50% of the sweep of wiper in the 'pot' actually has any effect. But it was able to dim the led a considerable amount w/o ever shutting it off. also the good thing i read about 'pots' is that if they burn out they will either completely cut power, or go to full power of the circuit which normally you'd have to watch out for if the circuit couldn't withstand the whole 12volts but in our situation the gauges can use the full power. J-Spec is there anyway that this would void the warranty on the gauge, waiting to see before i move it from my set of leds to my gauge itself. But it should work exactly the same because the leds were 5mm leds with inline resistors which is most likely how the leds in the gauge are set up

If you do this could you please take and post pics of the process?

yea if i go ahead and do this i will do a write up, just waiting to hear from j-spec about warranty on the gauge, as i don't think the leds in the gauge can be easily changed and don't want to risk burning them out or give out a diy that could have negative effects. This wouldn't be until this coming saturday, as i am away for the week and all my electronic stuff and tools are at home and its essential for the diy because the potentiometers need leads soldered to them, at least in my opinion.

07wrxwag - This will not void the warranty. You are not increasing the voltage nor are you opening the gauge or sending unit so you're fine.

good to hear, i am going to transfer the pot over to the gauge next saturday than and see if it works like it has when i've bench tested with the leds. I am going to try and find a pot with a higher resistance and an on/off ability so i can shut it off if wanted.

Thaison if you find any information out could you please post it incase your electrician knows a simpler way than what my electrician told me

thanks

07wrxwag: I spoke to the elec engineer and here's the situation. All LED's follow a voltage / current curve. At a certain point prior to cutoff (the LED turns off) which is approximately around 70% X max voltage (12V), the current passing through the LED is linear to the voltage. Decrease the voltage -> will decrease the current -> which will decrease the intensity. With a high resolution potentiometer, the LED can be dimmed within this range. Once the potentiometer is increased and consumes more than approx 30% of max voltage, the LED will turn off. So an LED will dim somewhat but unlike a filament bulb, there is a small region that the dimming capabilities will work. I'll work up a schematic diagram, test the "resistance" of the LED circuit and figure out what the optimal resistance range would be for the potentiometer. Stay tuned.
Thanks,
Thaison

Great! I've been waiting for the 45mm eboost wrx look gauges for months now.

Does the EGT come with the probe/sender?

chimchimm5 - yes, the EGT gauge will come with the probe, wiring harness and bung. We are just waiting on a review of the prototype before we forecast a general availability date.
