2007 STi, finally!

Default New SPT boost gauge install on 2007 STi

I really did not like the old boost gauge on my steering column. However, I saw the new SPT boost gauge in Subiesport magazine last year and thought it would like nice on my 07 STi interior.
I have changed quite a bit on the interior of the car. 05 WRX seats, black carpet and interior back light is all red and I am not a big fan of the blue seats and carpet.
There was some modification involved to the mounting bracket and wiring but I was able to use the same hose from the existing boost gauge. the gauge comes with the wiring for 08+ WRX and STi, but that did not work for me. So, I used the power from the clock and the ground from the original boost gauge behind the stereo. This way, I can always have back light when the car is on and still dim at night when the head lights are on.
So here are some pics, enjoy!

I wonder if you can change out the bulb inside to match the green instrument cluster of earlier models...this gauge looks nice, but the red would look off in my 04.

+1, should have at least made it go up to 30psi for the price they charge. If you are staying below 20psi though the gauge is dead sexy.

I know this thread is old but could OP give some more hints on how to wire the 08+ SPT boost gauge in a 2007 STi? The pictures that were attached to this thread are no longer showing as well.

I just got a 08+ boost gauge kit and i would like to install it in my 07 but am trying to do some research on mounting positions and wiring before i tear into it in detail.

Anyone that has done this please share your tips!

Ive been looking around for the exact same thing. I have a lamco gauge and the SPT gauge looks perfect for what I want?

Does anyone else know how exactly the two gauges can intertwine?

I just mounted mine temporary on the dash using velcro, if i like the position after driving around for a while i'll get into hooking it up. All i supposedly need to know is to hook up the dimer function so its not too bright at all times, the rest i can figure out.
Anyone??
