Autometer HPOP Gauge install..... HELP!

I need to find where the HPOP/ICP sending unit is so I can tap the two wires for the gauge input.
The truck is a 2004 6.0. F350 Automatic.
I called Autometer and he said it should be on the pass side valve cover. Well I cant find it and have looked everywhere and NO Dark Blue with green tracer and grey with red tracer.
A picture would be helpful.
Thanks!

well..If you have an early 04..it might be under the turbo near the IPR...otherwise if its on your pass side valve cover, its right above the glow plug module..almost directly underneath the hot side CAC tube. Don't have a picture for ya..but if you're not seeing it there, chances are you have an early build..and its buried in the back. Sorry for the bad news

The sender should be behind the turbo for that build date.

BUMP!

Will this gauge read the actual psi, not the skewed number that is displayed when you have a custom tune?

If it reads off tye sender then yes it will read correct, the "tricked" reading should only come from tye obdII port.

I was thinking it would read that way.

The next obvious question (to me anyway) is: will a tuned 6.0 hpop going to generate in excess of 4000 psi?

Yes it should hit 4000 psi if everything is healthy.

I use my edge CTS to monitor ICP voltage and it is accurate while tuned, I hold 4.8 to 4.6v at wot with 175s

Hmmm, I'm going to have to research if the Scan Gauge II does ICP voltage. It does ICP pressure, but that's useless when you're running a tune. Why spend $150 on something I already have the capability to monitor.

wrong. It's all in the tuning. I have a HPOP gauge and certain tuning will give an incorrect reading even when you are getting it directly from the sensor. I run Eric's tuning and my HPOP gauge would never read over 1500psi when tuned. Turn it back to stock...it'll read normal. Voltage will also read incorrectly. Now, since I installed the stage 3 68mm vgt back in September...eric rewrote my tunes and now ICP psi and voltage will read normal when tuned. The tuner can mess with/fool with the icp to read incorrectly even tho the reading is coming directly from the sensor itself. I have an early '04 with the sensor in the HPOP cover under the turbo. I used Strictly Diesel's HPOP pigtail http://www.strictlydiesel.com/p-2657...l-pigtail.aspx makes it a lot easier than cutting and splicing the factory harness. Just plug n play.
