Default Can the clock wiring support 2 gauges

Can the clock wiring support 2 gauges and the factory clock. I tapped my clock for my boost gauge and its fine. I am about to install my EGT and I am hoping the wiring can support it.

The Triple gauge cluster that subaru offers for the impreza uses the clock wiring, I dont see why not.

There are two separate circuits in question, one for illumination which is the same circuit as all the other dimmable dash lights, and the other for accessory power to run the gauges that are electrical. The bulbs used in the gauges are small and don't pull much additional current from the illumination circuit, and the electrical gauges don't draw that much current either, so running a few gauges together is no problem.

I have my lights for my Autometer SportComp EGT and boost guages tapped to the extra plug on the radio harness, which dims. I use the 168 bulbs colored with a green marker, and the effect is just about stock looking. I tapped power for the EGT from one of the empty relay plugs on the dash fuse panel.
