WTB: Factory radio from any Subaru for my STi

When buying an STi, is the oEM boost gauge accurate? Is it worth it, or should one just opt for an aftermarket setup? I saw some pics of the Omori triple gauge pack, and they looked great. In that case, do you need to wire up your own EGT?

You have to wire up all the aftermarket gauges yourself. . . . even in the case of the OEM I think you still have to run everything just as if it was never there. (Someone please correct me if I'm wrong)

I'm going aftermarket with my gauges. Ordering several of the Defi gauges through the groupbuy "Boostgauge" is setting up. :D

As I am planning to use the gauge pod area for a stereo head unit and double Din area for a LCD nav system. I was wondering how I could add some STI looking gauges. So far I was looking at a A-Pillar setup with Omori gauges for the red needle and red letters on black look. That may have now just changed.

I just seen a show on TV that showed a proto type HUD display that they plan on releasing in January. I went to their web site

I inquired about the flexiblity in types of gauges and color and got the following responce....
We currently plan on having the basic HoloSport( HUD ready for general availability around January. It will be priced comparable to conventional gauges at MSRP of $486. We are working on getting distributors up and running. The basic system comes with Tachometer, Vacuum/Boost, Oil or Water Temperature, Oil Pressure, and Volts. Also included is a programmable shift light, a NOS arming and activation light. All of these functions can be viewed at the same time or each separately.

Additional expansion cards w/ senders (included) will be available for $80 to $125 MSRP depending on the function. These include functions such as speed, exhaust gas temp, air/fuel ratio, stereo amplifier temp, and NOS level. There is a limit as to how many of these can be added because the display gets crowded.

The dash unit measures 7"x7"x1-1/4" and we supply all the necessary senders for universal installation. For the individual that wants to mount it flush under the dash we have an under dash mounting system available. This of course requires cutting a hole in the dash.

The image displays directly on the windshield but you need to apply our clear proprietary film (supplied) for the best results. This is to eliminate the distracting double image you often see when something is reflected off of the dash onto the windshield. We condition the optical properties so that you get a nice single crisp image of the display. We also have an optional Tombstone display much like the fighter pilots have in their aircraft. These are available for an additional $127.50 MSRP.

The unit will be available in three-color choices; green, red/orange, and blue. It turns out that due to availability the only color available initially will be the red/orange. We are having the web site updated to reflect this. We have also designed and patented the system to work in daylight. There are two settings because the light required for daylight operation is to bright for nighttime use.

I hope this was informative and thanks for considering the HoloSport( product.

What kind of car do you have?

What other modifications are you considering?

I think I have found my solution. Yippie. To bad its release is too late for xmas. Ha


You guys might pester them for a STI specific setup.
Mabie even a green or green / blue WRX setup.
