Default Omori Boost Gauge Installed, 09 WRX (pics)

Just in case anyone cares....nothing all that special.






(the red blotch on the gauge is the reflection of my night flash)

mine looks pinkish in the daytime, but at night it's a dead-on match to the gauges. I also got the "dimmer" on it, which is basically a resistor that dims the LEDs about 30% so they're not blinding at night.

Hey I just picked up the same gauge with the dimmer, where did you wire the "Green" wire too? Did you have to tap into the wires on the back of the dimmer switch itself? I tapped into the "illumination" fuse #16 but all that did was make it so it turns on and off with the headlights.

Looks good, nice and clean! I've always thought Omori had the best looking "factory match" gauges.

OP - where did you end up purchasing the boost gauge and how much? does it come with the pod for the steering column also? was it an easy install?

I prefer the Maddad ones, but regardless, nice install OP!

I thought Omori went out of business for screwing a lot of people/businesses.

I bought mine from J-Spec tuning, I think it was $120 including the pod. I really like the guage! I have it mounted on top of the guage cluster. I bought the optional dimmer which kicks down the brightness a bit, but is not adjustable. Even with the dimmer it's about as bright as the guage cluster at the highest or second highest setting. I put a 1k Ohm linear taper potentiometer between the dimmer and the white wire on the guage to dim it further. The only problem is if you dim it too much the needle disappears. I would post some pics but can't figure out how.. I guess you can't post any pics on here unless it's a url?

ohh, alright. nice install regardless. i am going to look into that for my 09 wrx. the only downfall is that you can't adjust the dimming option.

as for posting up pics - you have you have an account with flickr or photobucket, etc.. (any pic hosting site) in order to post them on a forum. you would upload/resize the pic from your computer to the site, then you can copy/paste the URL to the forum.

Mine has the same illumination all the time....it has a wired-in resistor from the vendor so it's not super-bright at night, but can still be seen in the daytime. I wired it per their instructions, I forget which wire went where...I'll look around later this week and see if I can find the instructions.

honestly, don't recall. I'll try to look thorugh my receipts. Install was easy except for routing the sensor wiring through the firewall under the TMIC....hard to get to it behind the dash!

For the guys who have the Omori boost gauge, do your gauges read accurately? I like how the Maddad gauges match up with the oem gauges exact, but ive read customers complaiants of how it reads the peak boost a little higher than what the actual peak boost is.
