Default 2009 SPT Boost Gauge coming soon!

I got a copy of the 2009 Subaru Genuine Performance Parts Catalog from some friends at Exeter Subaru. Subaru has finally released a color matched boost gauge for the 2008/2009 WRX/STIís. Labeled as the SPT Boost Gauge the description reads:

Quote:
SPT Boost Gauge
Displays engine vacuum in inHg and boost in PSI. Bright red illumination matches the vehicle instrument panel lighting and goes dark when the engine is turned off. Kit includes mounting cup and bracket.

Impreza WRX & WRX STI (2008-2009) H501SFG500 (Available February Ď09)
Iíll be putting my order in soon ;-)

You should use a scanner...

I like the description of it, though.

Very nice gauge might have to consider it if its the same size as the older models and reads psi and its red. I don't think subaru expects a stock vehicle to go past 20psi.

I'd LIKE to see more gauges that only go up to 20 psi. Most gauges seem to go to 30, which the vast majority of cars never hit anyway. Give me more deflection and 20 psi and I'd be happy!

I ordered right from the dealer. They wont be in until sometime in February/March though. The part number is in the catalog so they can look it up in the system, it will just show up as not stocked.

what size does that SPT one look like to you guys? I assume it is the same as the old one.. anyone know the size... looks like gauges come in one of 3 sizes ..45mm, 52mm or 60mm

I like this, only wish they had an option in blue. (09 Forester)
