Default Boost Gauge Install

I am going to be installing a boost gauge in my 04 WRX soon and had read a few places of people reflashing after the install. Is it necessary to reflash/reset the ECU after the boost gauge is installed?

Absolutely not. Adding a gauge has no effect on the ECU.

Well in this case, the boost gauge was probably installed to monitor their new ECU reflash (stage 2)

i too am installing a boost gauge. Not to hi-jack but I got mine used and it's the OEM Lamco gauge, and I guess the previous owner got it "professionally" installed.

My problem lies with wiring harness. The professionals deemed it unnecessary and went on to wire it themselves. Now I have a positive and a ground wire to run the boost gauge lighting which is fine, I just don't know where I can run it to so that the light turns on when I turn on my headlight or parking light.
