that'd be a good race. since the above pass i have figured out my race gas tune on that car and look forward to an even faster slip. stock the car only had ~130hp and a 17.4s 1/4 mile spec.

it takes the racing off the streets and to the strip where it belongs, complete with the smacktalking and challenges. it also paves the way for online stuff like ninjas vs. pirates!

the chicken gets these two upgrades, and the flotsam/jetsam to Brave Sir Robin. i prefer this type of boost gauge, it has 0-5v datalogging output and electronic sensor so no hose to leak. this style is closer to the original fitments and more appropriate for the panel than the unit it replaces.

I had the idea of using a 5 bar oil press gauge and sensor for fuel pressure, its relative simple to take the gauge apart, and change the pictogram "oilcan" to "fuel" Smile

this manufacturer in fact uses the same gauge, sender for either and you swap the face. seems someone owes you some money.

I was wondering if the sender unit could handle gas, you just confirmed that - Thanks Big Grin

Those e-codes look great on the car. Nice tip on the sender and guage for fuel pressure. I've always been wondering how to do that given I have K-jet. Good stuff and nice run too!

wolfman;

both old and new series aem list the same gauge/sensor p/n (respectively) for the fuel and oil pressure gauges; the only thing that changes is the gauge face. both series have 7 and 10-bar (100 and 150psi) versions Smile
