We tested this on our STI with a new oil change and that is normal readings for idle and we saw 90-100 WOT.

I've looked at the Defi website and it seems you cannot buy off of that site. I was just wondering what site you guys have bought all of your Defi equipment off of.

You can look at your local trusty performance shop web site and should get a good deal that way. Also, with you being in PA, if you shopped somewhere close, you would get the gauges in one day.

Haha, ya when I posted that I was only looking at the 08's, then I thought gauges are universal...so I went to the 06-07 STi and it hit me, I need to pay more attention and think a little bit. Your going to be getting a lot of business from me in the future.

There is no normal gauge reading for an AFR gauge.

Now this may seem like a noob thing to ask but lets say that (for instance) my fuel pressure gauge running low or really high. Are there common answers as to why this may be happening?

Now replace fuel pressure gauge with any of the other gauges with either a high or low reading. (This is where the noob part kicks in) Are there common answers to why any of the aforementioned gauges may be high or low?

The reason I ask is, I would like to have a gauge setup one of these days, but I would want to actually know what a bad reading is telling me (or what a bad reading might be telling me). Thanks in advance.

Hi, i searched aorund a bit but couldn't find anything

I'm only getting a boost gauge (at least for now), and was wondering where's the easiest place to mount one? without ripping apart too much

A pillar single pod Vs. steering column Vs. VMR's in vent gauge Vs. Subiegal pod

thanks

Single pod and SubieGal pod are pretty similar in location.
Steering column is easy to route everything to, also.

I'm not a fan of anything in my vents, personally. I've seen some slick installs, but I like my heat & cool air with nothing blocking the way. :-)

If you think you will be getting more gauges, I like the clean, factory look of a gauge pod that replaces the clock. I have a WRXtra and I've gotten a lot of compliments on it - it looks OEM.

Does the RS/i have similar wiring to the WRX/STi as far as lighting goes? Should it have the unused connector behind the radio head unit that is mentioned as a good place to get gauge lighting spliced to? its for my 07 2.5i and a couple STRI DSD's. cant find anything about the RS/i's on this subject.

Anyone know of a wide band A/F gage that matches an '04-'07 STi cluster? Preferably in 60 mm dia. Oh boy have I looked!

Default Sandwich plate and pressure sensor

Snipped......What the heck is a sandwich adapter? It is a machined aluminum piece that goes in between your block and oil filter. It is pre-tapped to allow you to run oil pressure and oil temperature senders into it......

I just want to be real sure that I can run an oil pressure sender off my sandwich plate.

My sandwich plate has an inlet/outlet set up so I can run an oil cooler in line. The plate also has the 2 usual ports for attaching sensors but I'm just not sure I can sense pressure from here. I am thinking that if I am running an oil cooler off this plate, then the oil going to it may not be under the same pressure as what the engine sees.

Anyone know if mountin a pressure sensor here would give accurate readings, similar to say the oil plug under the intercooler?

While I'm on this, does the oil filter see engine oil pressure or something lower? If it sees the same, then I expect the oil pressure sender being in the sandwich location is ok. If it's lower in the filter, then it is hard to see how the sender at the sandwich would give a good reading.

The oil filter adaptor plates can and do give you the same reading for oil press as the oil galley plug.

So yes, you can run OP off your oil sandwich plate.

Thank you. I have connected the temp and pressure sensors up. Just hope that there's room for all this stuff under there

Here is the link to the install I did of a ProSport Premium Boost gauge in my 07 WRX... it took a bit of time to get it perfect, but well worth it. Feel free to PM me if you have questions!
