Default Subaru OEM guage pack in Baja



That is the subaru guage pack for the forrester part number H5010SA001. Its supposed to be mounted in a pod on top of the dash by the clock on the foresters but I found if you use it without the pod you can mount it where the storage tray is under the radio as long as you dont have the sport activity lights wired up there.


Its a GREAT kit with everything you need and is all essentially plug and play with existing harnesses. The wires are alittle long because they are made to stretch to the top of the dash, I just coiled the excess and stowed it in the cave behind the radio.

Lights up with the parking lights and headlights and is dimmed with the rest of the interior lights. I just need to find a way to make it green to match the rest. Everything is hooked up minus the oil temp. I figured Ide wait until my next oil change since you need to replace the drain plug for the supplied one with a temp sensor in it. took about an hour and a half for me to install seeing how it was my first time taking the interior trim pieces off the baja and i didnt want to break them.

nice first post, "black ninja" ... what a cool name how about you lay off the stupid f'n comments 'til you make a few more posts... i think it looks pretty good for a stock piece, nice fit, but not exactly the gages i would have wanted. where did you find it? what size gages does it fit? is it a full pod or just a flimsy faceplate?

Edit: Thanks

It is the OEM guage pack, It comes with the plate (not flimsy), brackes for the plate, all 3 guages, all harnesses and wires (they plug in with a jumper between radio and existing harness) also includs the T and hose for the boost guage, all tie wraps, and clips to hold all wiring and stuff. It includes the drain plug with thermocouple and everything. It has very good instructions and has everything you need. The only thing it doesnt include is the dash pod, which doesnt really fit the Baja anyway as it is designed to fit the storage space on the top of the foresters dash.

I really like that, nice job! I can now add a few more gauges.

for some reason, my boost gauge does not dim, I did not see the harness for the radio (per the instructions) so I tapped one of the purple wires and a ground.

Did you happen to snap a pict of the extra harness? Maybe mine fell or got pushed somewhere and I just didn't see it.

I could see doing that, even if I don't need the boost gauge.

On second thought, I could wirre it in anyway, and have the boost cranked way up all the time. That way I would always think I was going real fast. Hmmmm...I like that.

Nice install, I knew it would fit, I asked my dealership if something like that with the vaccum can fit on my Legacy and they said it was specific for the Wrx, and the Forester. I had to fabricate my own gauge plate. here are the picts:

I did try a search, but not that particular site
- www.subaruparts.com is $541 but they want $60 for shipping!
- www.1stsubaruparts.com is $570

that subarupartsforyou.com price is very good and 2nd day UPS air is only $18.

I was looking around at the gauge packs - anyone know the difference between the new kits vs. the 2001/2002 for the Forrester? The kits for the older years go for less than $200 - from SubaruParts.com:

Performance Gauge Pack
List Price $199.00
Our Price $165.10
Displays engine manifold vacuum, voltage and oil temperature with black faced guages. Housing sold separately.

May be an option for those of us who already have the boost gauge.

Hmm. Now I do have the sport activity lights wired up. Hard to tell from the pictures, think this gauge set would fit underneath a single DIN replacement stereo head unit?

The guage pack is single din so if you have a single DIN headunit it will fit below that

That sounds like the top dash mounted pack for the older foresters. I havnt compared them but I definatly wouldnt be suprised if it was a single DIN unit like the one that I have. However the wiring would be different most likely, where as the one i have plugs right in.
