Finally I can be the first one on a gallery thread.

OEM Forester XT Gauges bought on Ebay for $150 brand new, and $60 for the housing. Turbo gauge work great for Forester XS only thing is I have no boost only engine vaccum.

ENJOY!!!!!

Made my own faceplate out of lexan & painted it flat black.
Bottom of the clock mount was also trimmed slightly to make the gauge area a hair taller.
Gauges shown are Autometer 2601, 2645 & 2615 (I've since replaced the 2615 with a 2640; the mechanical gauges are a PITA).
Also replaced the gauges incandecent bulbs & condoms with Autometer green LED bulbs #3285.
The green LEDs are a deeper green, but are closer to the dashboard green than the bulb w/condom setup.
The LEDs also dim properly when using the brightness control.

It's the display for the TurboXS DTEC-BC Boost Controller:
http://www.turboxs.com/shop_prod.php?what_category=1

I'm currently just using it for boost control with the gear-based function, but I plan on getting the intake air temp sensor soon so I can monitor that as well on the Gameboy. It's a fun toy to play with





Oh, and I forgot to mention, the gaugepod also functions as a perfect observation platform for The Duck's mascot:

Factory pod

The water temp gauge actually measures tranny and engine oil temp. I installed a switch for the two inputs.
