Default 2009 SPT Boost Gauge coming soon!

I got a copy of the 2009 Subaru Genuine Performance Parts Catalog from some friends at Exeter Subaru. Subaru has finally released a color matched boost gauge for the 2008/2009 WRX/STI’s. Labeled as the SPT Boost Gauge the description reads:

Quote:
SPT Boost Gauge
Displays engine vacuum in inHg and boost in PSI. Bright red illumination matches the vehicle instrument panel lighting and goes dark when the engine is turned off. Kit includes mounting cup and bracket.

Impreza WRX & WRX STI (2008-2009) H501SFG500 (Available February ‘09)
I’ll be putting my order in soon ;-)

EDIT:
Some information I've gathered since the original post:
* Reads up to 20psi
* MSRP is $230 (was quoted much less though)
* Not available from dealers until end of January.
* Comes with mounting cup and all necessary hardware.
* Mechanical type boost gauge.

Note: All dealers should have the catalog by now, mine got it last Wednesday, just swing by and pick one up. There are quite a few new items in there for the 08/09 WRX/STI.

Looks just like the one on japan parts except measures in inHg/PSI, says SPT on it and looks like its made by Stewart Warner Performance

Does it have a price? If it's less than a Defi then it might be worth it.

The photo has it mounted to the hood. But since it is a cup you could pretty much mount it anywhere, steering column is probably a safe spot.
