I have a relative that works for the local dealership, so I had him order me a SPT boost guage. The price was cheaper than everyone except for SGP or Fred Beans - but I saved on taxes and shipping so...I'd like to have Defi but that will probably the way I go in the track car or at a later date.

The install was not too difficult, and I like the plug and play with the two factory harnesses. I would prefer it mounted on the steering wheel column, but its not to bad on top of the instrument panel.


Disregard the dirty workbench in the background


I tapped the BPV vacuum line. Thinking back on it, I should have found another area for a cleaner look.

Installed some color-changing LED turn signal bulbs, LED license plate bulbs and swapped the OEM trunk trim with a color matched one. Time will tell if I like the LED's, but I like the trim swap. The only drawback is the 1 second delay from turn signal back to running lights.

Finally got around to installing a set of Hella Horns that have been in my garage for a year.

I bought them with the SubiMods harness, but hated the way it was made. I made my own instead.
















Excuse the bugs...
