Dual Pyros up and Running!

I finally got the leadwire for my 2nd pyro gauge yesterday. It was pouring down rain but I couldn't wait any longer. I went out, installed the probe in the passenger manifold (already had it drilled and tapped), routed the leadwire and plugged it into the 2nd gauge. Sitting at an idle, there is approx. 20* difference from drivers to passenger side readings. I test drove it and did a WOT run from a stop light and seen 100* difference. Driver's side runs hotter than passenger. When it quits raining and I have a little time I will get video posted of both pyros and the readings.

Congrats on the new pyro. I wonder if that is the same on all vehicles (drivers side hotter than passenger side). If so, then as long as we are tapped on the driver side (like most are) we are getting the highest possible reading and don't have to worry about the accuracy of only gauging one bank.

Drivers side runs hotter than passenger side on all 7.3 Powerstrokes but not sure about 6.0's. Something to do with the way the drivers manifold is made.

I will get some pics and hopefully some video this weekend if it doesn't rain. Today would have been a great day to do it, but I had Isaac and I can't very well leave a 2-1/2 month old here and don't want to drive crazy with him in the truck.
