Stock Boost Gauge

Ive read that the Stock Boost Gauge isn't very accurate, would it be a good idea to get a new gauge that was more accurate. And is there any made by Defi or Greddy that would fit in the stock pod, but just a different face. Or would i have to get a whole new gauge and would it fit on the mount, and how hard is it to hook up.

You need to get a whole new gauge and pod since the stock gauge is smaller then most aftermarket gauges & pods.

Get the defi link series boost gauge with a black face. It will match the interior of your car perfectly. If you buy an autometer (or a knockoff) instrument cluster bezel you can have two gauges. You will have to remove your old gauge/mount however. That's what I personally did. Here's a picture of my setup:



You can see that there is an empty spot on the left hand side, that's for the EGT gauge which I havn't popped in yet:

Ooh they really look good with the stock gauge cluster.
Wish I had the STi cluster so I can get the BF series that match up in red.

The picture above is not a stock pod. Its an aftermarket instrument gauge benzel that holds two 52mm or 60mm gauges. Much like these: http://www.jscspeed.com/wrx/interior/cluster_pods.htm
