Gauge Install

Okay, I am doing 3 pods this weekend on my truck! I got boost, pyro, tranny. I have the ZF5 now, I know you guys will probably say that was a bad move, but oh well. I am planning on going E4OD soon. My questions are, what is the best spot to tee in the boost gauge? What is the best spot to tee in the pyrometer? And also, does the tranny probe have to be in the tranny fluid to be effective? I am planning on drilling at the PTO cover. Any help/suggestions are much appreciated!

Shane got this one. On the Tranny temp on the Manual maybe get an adapter and use the drain hole?

How do you plan on drilling/tapping the PTO cover without losing a bunch of fluid and getting metal shaving inside your tranny? I'd just leave the tranny guage unhooked until you do the auto swap.

Not something I would mess with either but I assume take the cover off then refill with fluid

I understand. But does the probe have to be in the fluid to get a reading?

You dont really need the Tranny temp on a manual. They dont heat up as bad as an auto

Yeah, tranny temp is pretty meaningless in a simple oil bath case. The ZF6 is pumped and cooled, so it might warrant a gauge. But +1 on leaving it decommissioned for the time being. At swap time, you'll be trying to sell a tranny with a useless hole in the PTO cover....

To answer the question, yes the probe needs to be in the oil for the truest reading. The "air" inside of the case is not the same temp as the fluid.
