Spikes to 15.5 & settles to 13lbs, I wonder if I have a bad gauge or is it normal?
Seems low based upon other people's comments about boost spikes in the upper teens...
Yes...... thats the gauge with the red led..... Looks greathttp://www.42draftdesigns.com/product/sw/swb-114-379.htm
is this the gauge you installed? I assume you got the red LED, and if so how does the color look?
This is a gauge i might have to consider since its half as expensive as the omori gauge and i want a steering column mount. Now all i need is to find a suitable pod....
I'm running a VDO mechanical boost gauge on a steady diet of California 91 and I spike to 17-18psi than it sits on 15.5psi until about 5600rpms.I have an Autometer mechanical boost gauge and it does show a steady 15.5 psi boost when on the pipe (below 5500 rpm) I don't think it is sensitive enough to show the 18 psi spikes, as I haven't seen any.
Could also be that I am running California 91 octane gas too, as a possibility. Anyone else want to share their readings with a mechical boost gauge running similar fuel? :blush:
Hey Matt,Toybiz: I really like the placement of the gauge in the vent cluster. How difficult was it to put it in there? Does the whole center counsel have to come out? What size gauge did you use and did you have to fabricate some kind of mount to keep the gauge in there?
