Yep, I can do the conversion for now. I've thought about switching it for a new PSI guage. But, I haven't really researched the guages yet. What do you use? Have any pics of it?

I have the stock one (that came with the car), but I also use my AP for the gauge. All the stocker does is block my fuel gauge, lol.

Good luck, with it. Oh if you're not sure about getting the old BPV gasket off the old I/C. Then swing by a dealership to grab a BPV gasket. I got really lucky and used a putty knife to slowly scrap the old gasket off the old TMIC and re-use it. It came completely off the STI TMIC without damage. So far no leaks and a retune later. Its working fine. lol.

Thats a good point Kirt. I reused mine also from switching from the Perrin to the Cobb (had about 8,XXX miles on it).

Did you get it on?

I have an Omori electrical for sale. Does the STi gauge sweep and lights up red like the STi gauges. Was right on the mark compared to my AP. Took me about an hour or so to install and is about the same size as the stocker BUT reads correctly.

PM if interested. I can take pics and e-mail them to you or you can look here :
