1) I don't know of one that small, but most larger ones come with pods, I think. If not, pods are pretty cheap. I have 6 plastic Defi gauge cups just sitting in a box. While they are well made, they look pretty inexpensive.

Omori would be the first place to look for gauges that match. Greddy would be a close second.

2) Omori makes an inlet temp gauge...just don't put it in the inlet and Voila!
Magna-Donnelly makes an upgrade for the WRX rear view mirror that has outside temp.
The stock Subaru temp sensor goes on that little bracket on the bottom of the center radiator support. It can be ordered, but I don't know about the wiring harness, etc.
Lastly, you can get a useable temp reading from the ECU if you have a Pocketlogger or something like it.

for the facemask I bought Derres custom for 52mm. Good quality. I decided to save some and do the pod modification to fit the gauges. I kinda cut the wrong way, but it ended up the way that I originaly wanted, with the gauges flush with the pod. Ill post pics as soon as I get the other 2 gauges which should be in the mail.

These are the greatest pods that I have seen They look so non-intrusive on the interior.

Thanks! They really are non-intrusive. I made the pods so that the gauges can be seen at all times in between the stearing wheel and my hands due to my driving style. Thanks for feedback!

Anyone mount their gauges in the extra din slot with an aftermarket head unit? MKIV VW guys do it all the time and it looks nice and clean.

Thanks

Where can you get Omori gauges? It looks like the 45mm would fit the stock steering column pod.

I measured the Lamco gauge and it appears to be 1 3/4s" or so. Where's my metric ruler when I need it?

supposidly, omori of america went bankrupt, or out of business. Thats what vivid racing said, and they are distributers of omori.
So, i had orderd 2 gauges from vivid, and not until Jan, that I called vivid, they told me that they couldnt deliver because of that problem.

So, i changed to Greddy (I wanted boost in PSI )

--recommendation from my ecperience --
dont order from vivid, they take too long to deiver or answer for tracking. Hope those greddy com in this month, else ill cancel directly from my card.

Default Gauge pod in M2 WRX

Does anybody know who makes the center gauge pod in the M2 Performance WRX. Saw pics in magazine. Very nice. Matches the dash well. I e-mailed M2 but they did not reply. Anybody?

I've got a 45mm Omori boost gauge coming from Alamo Autosports. I'm hoping it'll fit in the factory steering column cup. I wonder why no one's messed with that before?

From M2

Yes, the gauge pod was previously only offered with the car packages, but we are starting production for sale individually and will be available in 4-6 weeks. We may or may not offer a finish other than carbon.
I really really want one, but I would prefer the "dash plastic"

EDIT: That was of 12/12

There are a few people who have done this - I am still waiting for mine, but about 3 other people have already done it and confirm that it will work. In fact, I believe Omori even sells a "kit" that includes the wiring and proper hose so you hardly need to do any cutting, or re-routing of the hose (not that it's too big of a deal, it can just help save time)

PS. You may need to put some slippery stuff (hehehhe) around the gauge and on the inside of the rubber "shell" on the column to help it slide in there. hehe - so dirty, yet so not....

Question DIN Gauges

Has anyone replaced their stock double DIN WRX head unit with a single DIN head unit, wound up with an open DIN pocket, only to use it to install a set of Omori gauges? How hard a job, aprox. $

Default My install (long, no pics)

I just did it. I was going to write it up; take some pics and post it to scoobymods. I am a *very* slow worker; but I did all the install work in an evening

I took about 4 hours a couple of days before the install to fabricate wire harnesses for the gauges. I put quick connects on the hot, illumination, and grounds for the 3 gauges. Then for each gauge, a quick connect to splices for the various wires, then to a single quick connect that houses 1 hot, illumination, and grounds. From there, the hot is connected to the cigar lighter hot (red wire) by vampire clip, the illumination to the unused lighting connect on the radio harness (you'll see it, it is just taped down -- you want the violet wire), and the grounds to two separate chassis screws.

For an Omori boost, you need a different T for the vacuum hose. You want Omori part P-94. For an oil temp, you need a diferent oil drain plug, P-74.

I used the Omori, P-107 DIN housing for 45mm gauges. I am not happy with it yet. You need to trim the "step" off the top and bottom. No problem, a couple of passes with a razor blade does it cleanly. The allen screws on the corners hit the dash trim, so, the gauges are not as far forward as I would like. I will be looking for some flush mounting screws.

For the head unit, I went with an Alpine 7892. Go to any of the retailers and buy the wiring harness adapters for whatever you get. Search on here in the audio forum for install instructions for whatever you buy. Someone here has done it before you! For Alpines, throw away the metal sleeve and the trim ring around the face of the head unit. Screw the unit directly to the factory rails in either the upper or lower position.
