Default which boost gauge?

I forgot to get a boost gauge when I got my 2004 and was thinking of getting the factory one from subaruparts.com but I've heard that its not very precise. Any other options out there for just a single gauge pod that looks good?

There is nothing wrong with the factory gauge, as long as you don't mind the small size and the fact that it's calibrated in metric units (mPa) rather than psi. It's a mechanical gauge but that doesn't mean it isn't accurate.
It is kind of pricey for what you get though, so shop around for the best deal and check the Private Classifieds here as there is usually at least one or two used ones for sale at reasonable prices.

Lots of people are using the Omori gauge which will fit in the factory rubber cup, matches the STI gauges (if you get the sti-specific one), and reads PSI. They are backordered a month through j-spec ( http://www.j-spectuning.com/omori_rr.htm ).
