Default Boost gauge

As some of you may know, GTP'* do not come with an analog boost gauge. It is just a digial one that doesn't show boost numerically. Considering I will be putting on a 3.4" pulley in the near future, I want to get a boost gauge so I can monitor the supercharger.

I was looking on PFYC.com at some of the gauges. I also looked on Autometer'* website.

I was looking at this gauge.

I want to know if this comes with backlighting, or do I have to put a small bulb in there to light it up? I want to get a red glow to match all the other gauges.
