Default Install Defi BF guages on a 2005 STI

I am interested in installing a set of defi BF guages on my 2005 STI. i know they are a bit pricey but from when i hear they are pretty sick guages and are a great match for my OEM guage cluster. I was wondering if anyone installed a set of three of these guages and control unit in their STI (more specifically Boost, EGT and Oil pressure.) and about how much i would pay on average for install.

Also i an debating installing the guages on the A pillar versus the tripple hood style mount over the deck. If anyone has pictures they would be greately appreciated.

I'm about to install my Defi Boost, EGT, and Oil Pressure gauges probably sometime next weekend or even tomorrow. I'll let you know how it goes. jsalicru posted instructions that are quite detailed; here's the link:

http://homepage.mac.com/jsalicru/GaugesHowTo.html

As far as the price goes for having someone else install them, I'm not sure. I usually prefer to do all modifications myself if I have the tools and time. Good luck; I'll keep you posted.

sounds good tony. yeah i was contemplating instaling them myself but i have never worked with my subaru (or with any subaru for that matter) before. I figured i would do up some nice gauges before i tampered with the turbo.

thx for the link and lemme know how the diy install goes. i may just end up putting em in myself.

Ok so here's the verdict...I'm almost done with the installation; things went well until I went to install the oil pressure sensor. I used the information that jsalicru provided, but was unable to find the subaru part # for the adaptor. I need to get the adaptor before I can install the oil pressure sensor. If you have any questions with anything else along the lines of the installation, let me know.

-Tony

EDIT: found the part #'s, here they are...

For the adaptor (Main Galley Plug):
11024AA210

For the gasket needed:
037018200

Go to www.subaruparts.com if you want; they have the parts listed there.
Good luck.

I did the install myself. Except I had an oil temp gauge so I used an oil filter sandwich adapter.

And luckily, my stereo harness had all the wires marked, so that made the wiring a snap

Installation complete!

It was quite easy with the directions I used from jaslicru. Yesterday I got the oil gallery plug and the crush washer that goes with it. Today it took all of 25 minutes to install the oil pressure sensor. The majority of the time was spent working the threads into place in the tight space provided. It is absolutely necessary to buy a 17mm crowfoot in order to crank down the oil pressure sensor. First I connected the sensor to the gallery plug, using thread locker 3/4 of the way around the threads. Then I went ahead and hand-tightened the sensor/gallery plug combo to the block. Don't forget the crush washer! I put a little thread locker on it just to tack it to the gallery plug while I lowered it down to the hole in the block. It was almost impossible to get in there. After I got it down as tight as I could with my two fingers, I used the crowfoot to tighten it. It helps to take a piece of paper and wedge it between the extension bar and the crowfoot to hold it in place. I then reinstalled the IC and tightened all the hoses etc. and started it up. No oil leaks, so I'm good to go. Any more questions, feel free to ask.
