I am talking about the BOOST gauge in the middle. That is the only bulb I changed. It had a regular 194 bulb with a red rubber on it. But yes, there are red leds available, but leds dont put out enough ambient? light to properly illuminate the gauge.
Re: Some night pics of my gauge install... (SlvrBllt)
I have the same LEDs, both red & blue, and a vision boost guage. The blue doesn't work great like you've noticed, and the red are even worse... they're so dim you can barley see the gauge. Sucks the only LEDs you can plug into these things are cheap dim ones. I have a blue LED keychain lights that runs off a watch battery and is 3x brighter.I've been thinking about ordering the LEDs that are the same color as the dash and wiring up a little cluster to glue in the gauge bulb hole somehow.
