Pyrometer and Up-pipe Questions

I have a 2002, 7.3L powerstroke turbo F-350. The first issue I have is sometimes when I am driving and hit a bump, my pyrometer goes dead and then I will hit another bump and the pyrometer will spike up/on again. My guess is there is a connection problem somewhere but I was wondering if anyone had any additional thoughts about this.

Second, I will be replacing my up-pipes soon. I am replacing the stock ones with international, ceramic-coated, bellowed up-pipes. I was wondering if anyone had any tips or suggestions about this process.

Any suggestions or directions on where I can find some answers/help will be greatly appreciated.

Your wiring is probably shorting out on something. The problem is where

I was also having trouble with my pyrometer gauge. Mine was bouncing, not working, and sometimes going all the way in a circle. I took it to a shop once and they tighted the ground and it helped for about 2 days. I just recently bought a new one with new probe and wires. I then installed it per the instructions. The person before me had the ground wires going to the dash board metal as the ground, when the recommended place from autometer is the factory Ford ground behind the parking brake kick panel. I also called autometer who stated the very best place to ground it is on the motor. So far I have been pleased with changing the ground to the kick panel. Also it could have been the new guage and wires.

I am also doing my up pipes as well as non ebpv turbo pedestal and ported housing. The link below is to the dieselorings.com instructions page. There is also instructions for removing the turbo and a lot of other mods that you may be interested in.

Here you go: http://www.riffraffdiesel.com/mm5/RE...structions.pdf

I have done about 15 sets of IH bellowed up-pipes now. The one thing you need more than anything else is patience. Read and re-read the instructions. You will be pleased once it is all over.
