Yet another gauge thread... HPO mainly

Ok, I'm gonna do gauges when I get my F-650 dash from RDP (3 gauge, 3 switch) quad a-pillar pod, and a column pod. So I'm thinking Boost 0-60, Trans temp 100-280*, pyro 0-1600*, Fuel pressure 0-100, Oil temp 140-320, coolant temp 140-320, and 2 HPO gauges 0-4000. The reason I'm thinking I should get 2 HPO gauges is they screw into the dummy plugs don't they? (in the HPO rails) That way I'd have a consistant reading of each rail. If they dont I guess im just missing the point

but imo its overkill. unless you are running some wicked injectors with a wicked hpop and wicked tunes on top of that.

HPO gauges (the electric kind like ISSPRO and DiPricol) use the existing ICP sensor wiring using an adapter harness that simply plugs in between the sensor and factory harness connector.

It would be possible to get another ICP sensor and mount it in the passenger side head; you'd only need to supply the sensor with the 5v reference and signal return (ground) from the original sensor.

The connector can be purchased from your GM dealer (PT2319 or PT1825) and easily spliced into the factory harness.

Analog gauges are infinitely better than digital (just the way the brain interprets visual data). I have one in each of my 7.3L trucks. They're fun to watch.
