If not Prosport, what else?!
1 Attachment(s)
So I'm a huge fan of Prosports white pointer/amber premium gauges, but after doing a lot of research I clearly understand they're anything but premium. So my question is this. Does anyone know anyone that makes an OEM looking gauge like the Prosport premiums with the white needles and amber lighting? I can't find anything that looks nearly OEM like those do. Any help on who makes a gauge at least with white needles and produces quality products I'd really like to take a look at them. Thanks for any help offered guys.

And sorry if this is in the wrong forum...I tried lol! [ATTACH]5939[/ATTACH]

Check out Defi gauges. Fair warning: they're expensive :cool:

I'll second Defi... though they don't have the white needle the red lighting is dead on. Not to mention the quality is top notch.

For what it's worth, I have three Prosport gauges on my 07 WRX (premium electric boost, oil pressure, and egt) for nearly two years (~27k miles) and I've only had two issues, both of which were my fault. When I disconnected one of the gauges, I stuck a small flathead screwdriver in the harness to unclip the wires and it sparked and fried it. The other mistake I made was mounting a sensor too close to the turbo on the hot side of the engine and it died prematurely. After purchasing a replacement gauge and another sensor with an extension to mount it on the opposite side of the engine, everything's been working fine.

I've read plenty of negative things about them and I'm sure they're not the most accurate gauges in the world, but they're close enough for me. I rarely look at them any more since I have the peak/warn feature set up to notify me when things are about to go wrong, so they're mainly for show at this point. The green matches my stock gauges close enough and the price was right. I, personally, don't have anything negative to say about them... yet :)

Thanks for the feedback Man Show. I really like the match they got going on with the 08+ but just seems all neg I read about them. Def nice to hear some good in em though cause they do have the whole line up of gauges I'll eventually need.

Alex, I plan to go with AFR and Boost at first. But once I install mods and custom tune my car I'd like to get others. Defi was actually the line I was looking at before stumbling apon the Prosports. Might be what I go with in the spring when I get my early season mod itch lol! Got a few good mods being installed too. I'll start a build page once started.

Bringing this one back. I've found that Omori makes gauges that look OE like the Prosport series. Anyone know a website where I can see all of their lineup? I've been Googling everything I can think of and I come up with no actually websites, just random FS ads.

Defi all the way. Spend the money. The quality is there. I have a defi boost and an aem wideband w the smy cluster. Looks amazing. Install was a breeze. Did it myself

They don't have a series with amber/white dials though I believe...or do they?

Omori has been out of business for years.

I bought my Omori boost gauge back in 2007.... did thye go under right after that?

That's where I got mine Brandon....

Thanks Paul. Do you know if they've gone out of business? Or just stopped doing business in the US? I've tried googling everything possible but only get vague answers on what happened to them. I did find a couple emails supposedly connected to Omori so I sent them inquiries into wether they're still in business or not. Hopefully someone gets back to me. Even though they look nice and seem to have a reputation for decent quality I'd hate to buy something that's got no manufacturer backing behind it.
