If you want a boost gauge, you can get the same autometer gauge they use anywhere, you can pay for the Comp Package 'gauge add-on', and use the normal hook-up for the boost gauge as per the instructions. They don't want you tapping into your factory wiring harness, to get the boost reading from the computer, which is what I assume the factory one is doing. You can do the same thing, and have it look the exact same, with the factory housing, and an aftermarket boost gauge. I'd do it that way warranty or not.

If you're asking about screwing up your car by putting in a boost gauge, hit up the AutoMeter's website and browse through the install instructions for the boost gauges, you'd be pretty hard pressed to hurt anything if you follow the instructions. Hell, you'd have a hard time if you didn't, short of leaving a wire laying around somewhere to get pinched and short out...

It's only ok if the gauge can be hooked up like a normal aftermarket one, I'm assuming that it comes with the gauge, and the gauge just plugs into the factory wiring harness, which you don't have. You would want only the frame work, not the gauge itself. IF you want that comp package steering wheel cluster. It's expensive because the ladder tach electronics are included with it.

I think the cluster looks good, but costs WAY too much money. I'd just go with an aftermarket gauge, and place it somwhere good. DaytonaGTS had a pic up, with what I believe he said was a newer Mustang 'pod' on it, positioned in the corner of the front window, two holes, looked real good, real clean.
