Thanks for this write up. I am going to buy an AEM boost and uego wideband and wanted to see how to other people were wiring them. Those fuse extensions are an awesome help! I was going to hard wire it all like a dummy! This will make it sooooo much easier to wire. This way I can set it all up before hand and then I don't need to be messing around in the car for so long, just prep it all and connect it up!

Constant 12v - #3 door locks
Switched 12v - #26 IG2
Illumination/dimmer - #16

10 amp fuses for every fuse tap on the gauge circuit.

My gauges have been in for over a week and no issues. They work great!
FYI- AEM Uego afr gauge and STRI boost gauge.

Are you sure you have the correct wires on your gauges hooked to the right fuses?

O.C.D. you have inspired me!

Ordered all the parts for this, going to try to get this to a point that when I finally take delivery on my car I can install it very quickly. Also followed your audio install thread, definitely took some good info out of that.

I had a nice install of DEFI BF's in my old STi, but I just don't have the $1500 budget for gauges this time around!

Yes, the sending unit comes with the Racer series Oil Pressure Units.

Defi comes with all sensors and wiring required, but you will still have to run wires from the sensors to the gauges. I'm not clear on what you are asking here.

Like I have cheap gauges that have no sending unit so I have wires and hoses running up to the back of the gauge. Like instead of the vacuum hose going to the sending unit to read boost it runs to the back of the gauge. I want to do a sending unit

So does the boost gauge have a sending unit or does your hose plug into the back of the gauge like my 30 dollar glowshift gauge? Haha

If its a mechanical boost gauge it will plug into the back of the gauge no matter the brand.

Contact glow shift or prosport for a sending unit. You need a sender for an electronic gauge.

The Defi has a sending unit that runs a physical tube to the BPV. That sending unit then runs a small wire to the gauge. There is no routing of a tube to the back of the gauge like most brands for less money, aka GloShift.

That's because it is an electronic gauge. Any mechanical gauge will have a tube to the back of the gauge.

See that's what I want to do so I don't have to run the tubes thought the fire wall. How watch we're your defi gauges if you don't mind me asking?

Well, now your making me think. They are all over the web but I recall they were $.

I think the pressure was around $240 and the boost around $180 or so. Including the SMY cluster and the gauges it was near $700. Not cheap by any means as there are other cheaper options. I did not want cheap or mechanical gauges. Electronic for me, Defi had what I wanted in the closest color.

Glo-Crap is well, crap. Prosport I am mixed on as I have heard nothing good from anyone who has owned them. Maybe the new "WRX/STI" gauges with the white needles are built better?

I have had the same Prosport Boost gauge for 6 years. Even took it from my Legacy and installed it on my 2011 WRX. I have had no issues at all with it and it still looks great. I also have the Prosport Oil pressure gauge in my car that I installed a couple of months ago. No issues with it other than it was a little too deep to fit into the SMY gauge cluster so I modded the gauge a little.

I just bought the SMY cluster, along with a prosport "White needle" boost and oil pressure gauge. Once they get to me, I'm going to install them following your diy. I have faith that the prosport gauges will work properly haha. But ill let you all know how it goes.

Here is a link to the Prosport Performance series gauges that are in my car: http://prosportgauges.com/amber_whit...ce_gauges.aspx

I have the boost and oil pressure gauges. The performance series allows you to light up the gauges in white or Amber or a combination of the two. For instance you can light them up in white during the day and amber at night if you choose to. Depends on how you wire it. Mine are amber all the time to match the dash color.

I think there gauges are priced well. I took a picture of mine installed already but have not had a chance to post it yet. I will try to post it tonight.
