personally id rather see boost in psi than KPa lol

im assuming it comes with all the sender units, sandwich plates etc but the ting is...is it really worth the price? im sure its more reliable and accurate than a prosport but still..is it worth the price?

I understand what your saying. .. it is expensive.... and I am going for a stock/ neat look..... I'm comfortable with the kpa/ bar guages. ..I work with them all day. ... so it's not a big deal for me. .I can convert on the fly. .lol.......what do you suggest as an alternative? is the prosport similar or do you have to build your custom set of 3?.... in the end i want it to look "non hand built" if you know what i mean

Forget Prosport. I had some dealings with their warranty department yesterday. Decided to just trash the gauges than waste money shipping them back to the us.

I'm personally running aem gauges as well as Prosport comp 2 digitals....there is a single din finisher from autometer than can be assembled to create what you are looking for...

Autometer also had an elite 2 series which look exactly like the sti gauges and I believe they sweep as well. They provide peak alerts as well. Never saw them locally tho but you can find them online

As Aaron said. Just go with some aftermarket units with a single din finisher.

For that price... Best you go defi..

Oem Subaru performance parts are very pricey.

I use autometer gauges and they work fine.

The fitment also seems straight forward. If you're good with your hands you can almost replicate something similar with little effort.

i got the '08 legacy jus like urs and personally im running the aem and autometer gauges...prosport is rubbish...esp the electrical boost gauge...used them before..lasted less than a year before i tossed em

autometer gauges are pretty robust..also the mechanical gauges are wheyy more reliable

there are finishers on avo jdm and japanparts..or u cud jus pillar mount

I really don't like pillar mount... that being said. .I checked evo jdm.. They got the finisher for the cubby just like the sti guages for like $84us... might get that and buy the guages separate. .I bought from them before. .I got the double din for where the radio is located... Haven't installed it yet.. waiting for the new pioneer deck (NEX SERIES)...

Ok ...i decided with the the STi gauges.. They were made by Defi.... When i calculated the gauges separately it was almost the same thing.(if not more,depending on the brand).....So stock look ....with a pillar mount AEM wideband (I conceded, but going to mount it low).... i think that should do it...

It's not possible to rotate the front cover? So the bezel can face the right side?

Seeing that I was sending it back. .I didn't want to open and mess with it.... But because of your 'encouragement' Aaron. ..I decided to give it a go.... it wasn't so simple as rotating the face. ..I had to scrap it right down.... remove the 3 guages. .... swap the one's on both ends. .. and flip the housing for the guages. .. Mount it back up. ... and flip the front face..... In the end it all worked out great. ... and I can keep it :)... One thing though. .. There is always a but. ....I no longer have a STI guage pack..... I now have a AS guage pack. ....I will call it ...Ayrton Senna guage pack....lol...Will post a pic of the new angle

For the $$ Im sure you spent, you could have gotten some sweet Defi gauges..

but is the STi badge on it a graphic (sticker) if so, have it removed and just go to the local graphic shop and have them cut over a new one for you, and just stick it on the bottom right or wherever u want.

This was made by defi for the Subaru.....And the logo is under the front glass and is but a sticker...only way to fix that is to remove the glass.... Will look into that later on..maybe I can heat the glass to remove it easier with scraping it ...

or go to a good vinyl shop and they can do something to cover it from the front...like a little carbon block with sti over it...something tastefully done...
