HPOP gauge

I notice a number of guys calculate their HPOP output pressure by measuring the voltage, why not just install a gauge?

I have Dakota Digital gauges and they made one like it up for me.

Extremely easy, just tie into one of the wires off the ICP sensor on the righthand side valve cover. If you need to know the color of the I guess I could look on mine to see.

HPOP Pressure Gauge | OC DIESEL

I have Dakota Digital gauges and they made one like it up for me.
I'm in the process of installing dakota digitals on my truck...i'm getting rid of the autometer's i have. So far i got the pyro just to see how it's gonna look. Gotta get the boost, trans, and fuel. I was gonna get the isspro HPOP gauge. But what dakota digital gauge did you use to read HPOP? I would love to have all the gauges be dakota digital if i can. Would love to see some pics of the gauges if you can.

I sent Dakota Digital a ISSPRO gauge to copy, they can copy ANY electrical gauge. They may still have the info on file as about a year after I bought the first one I ordered a second one for another truck and they did not need me to send them a gauge to copy. I like their gauges that display more then one thing and how you can display one read out real big if you want.

Also you can set high and low alarm points so the display will keep flashing on and off. It can also give an audio alarm by using a relay. I have mine hooked up to the seatbelt chime. The teal green color display is a close match to the digital read outs of my 05.

so is your dakota digital HPOP gauge reading in psi or voltage? Also is the harness a plug and play harness or did you actually have to tap into a wire off the harness for the ICP sensor? Do you have any pics of the gauges installed and displaying readings. After reading the egt instructions...seems like it'll take some getting use to seeing as that it only reads three digits. Examples are...06 is 60*, 70 is 700*, and 120 would be 1200*.

It reads in PSI. The analog gauge I sent down to DD came with an optional pigtail which had an extra wire sticking out of it to connect your gauge to, so yes plug & play. It is so simple though to strip a little insulation off the OEM wiring to connect your gauge, but if you want plug & play just phone a place that sells an analog HPOP gauge and order just the pigtail as it was like a $10 or $15 option when I ordered mine. Some places may say "no" but tell them "the dealer mechanic screwed your pigtail up and you need a new one". They may feel sorry for you and agree to send you a pigtail. LOL
As for the EGT, you just lose the forth digit when the temperature is 1000 degrees and hotter. eg: 950 degrees displays as "950" but 1145 would display as "114". Really though, how often are you running 1000 degrees or hotter and if you are you are surely going to know when you are pulling a heavy load up a long hill that a displayed reading of 120 is "1200" and NOT indicating a temperature of 120?
Next days off I will post some pics.
