I have this. but it is just too time consuming to do again.
Also, just a heads up, the boost gauge face is not illuminated. you
have to set up something else to illuminate it at night.
You will not be able to see your boost gauge at night if you don't.
I hope you find some one to do it for you.

With the car being turbocharged from the factory, why didn't Mitsubishi install a factory boost gauge? I'm assuming it has something to do with cost on their end?

honestly I don't do alot of driving at night, and mainly just looking to do this so I have an accurate reading.
I have read through the how to and can probably do it myself, but if someone else has already done it. So I don't mess it all up.
I have a second cluster for practice. But don't want to wreck the damn thing.

I was tempted to do this but went against it after realizing how easy it is to mount the gauge right next to it in either the speaker or using an ECS pod.

Would really like to get a mitsu guage with the triple diamond on the face. That would look like it was made that way.

Ever notice those orange bars lighting up across the Tach? That's the factory boost gauge.

Talk to Lonewolf about it, if I recall he has this mod done.

I believe you are correct. What I have seen so far is a three guage set up from an evo. I saw one for sale awhile back on here for like 100 bucks but missed out on it. Before I had any idea this could be done. From mitsu it is like 500 dollar's. definately not that interested. but will keep looking. It was a black guage little red triple diamond and I believe had boost inked in white on the face.

The Evo gauges are only from Evo RS and Evo MR. They come in oust(bar set up) , oil temp and volt. For oil temp it uses a special sensor connected to the drain plug.
