Default STRI gauge install help...

I am in the process of installing 3 X-line STRI gauges (boost, volt and oil temp) and have a few questions.



I installed my Xline STRI gauge into the clock harness without having to connect to any of wires in the radio harness... however, I've seen people connect yellow wire into the radio harness. Am I missing something here (please refer to the picture below)?

PS: Xline series gauges do not have daisy chain capability.

Another question. Do I need Subaru gallery plug in order to install oil temperature gauge or the plug supplied by STRI works properly?

I managed to connect red/black/yellow wires as shown below and plan to tap them into clock harness; has anyone done the same?

Lastly, my mech. boost gauge doesn't do 270 degree sweep, although instruction doesn't specify that. Is it normal for mech. boost gauge not to do 270 degree sweep?

Lastly, has anyone tried using rubber hose when installing boost gauge instead of using cheap pinchable plastic tubing?

clock harness is fine mine are wired to that. I would recommend using rubber tube not that plastic stuff since it kinks very easily. You will have to use some of it however I used a few inches than used the included adapter for the tubing I ran under the hood. The boost gauge does not sweep since it is mechanical.

I don't understand why SRTI designed the boost gauge with such crappy nylon tubing and metal fittings (especially two fragile sealing nuts) when it's so much easier to use a rubber tube similar to OEM/Omori.

My dsd boost gauge came with rubber tubing.....

As for the pressure sensor. They sensor itself is smaller than the defi sensor, but the threading on it allows you to directly screw the sucker in. I put mine one the drivers side galley plug with out the galley plug adapter. Worked just fine. Make sure you put some plumbers tape/ teflon tape on the threads though. Also I'm not sure if the sensors are the same between the x-line and the dsd slm II's, but i would assume that they are.

Do NOT put teflon tape on those threads! Imagine if some of it gets inside the engine. Some will be hanging off the threads and may eventually break off into the engine....clogged oil passages = bad juju.

I managed to install X-line STRI gauges today on WRXtra gauge pod. For those who have installed Xline gauges into the pod, how did you guys secure gauges into the pod? My x-line gauges or pod didn't come with anything to secure gauges into the pod.
