Hey Overland04, as always your write-ups are perfect and look amazing! I'm going to be getting a Gauge setup soon. How do you like your prosports, still working okay? Are they fairly accurate? Thanks in advanced

Hey All,

I have to say, I still love my Prosports. They are working 100% and still look great. They seem to be accurate, I'm just using them as a reference so I'm not the best judge to see how accurate they are.
Great value too!

Hey,

I posted the link to the galley plug in the beginning of the thread. It doesn't come with the gauge.

Any reason for not going with Exhaust gas temperature? I'll be purchasing my gauges today and I was going to go with that one, boost and oil pressure.

Nope, no reason not to. I didn't have the need to monitor the EGT so I went with the easier ones to install

Curious, what does EGT enforce? Like what's the purpose of monitoring it anyways?

I used to monitor it on my first B16b turbo install back in the day. It was nice to use on long pulls for tuning. Before access ports and wide band afr monitoring, I was able to manually tune with how hot the gasses exiting the turbo were. Too lean, got hot. To rich, ran cold. Proper fuel mixture made everything happy.

The gauge required to tap your down pipe to install the temperature probe. Not the easiest install.

Hmm makes sense, okay. Definitely going with Oil temp/pressure/boost now.

Awesome writeups Overland04! When I ran my Prosport Halo Boost Gauge (these have dimming BTW), I wired the sender unit under the dash, with vaccum line tapped near the BPV running through the firewall back to the sender unit. I thought I read that the sender wasn't waterproof and wouldn't hold up well in an engine compartment (with heat and dirt etc). No concerns with running yours in the engine bay? I find my guage to be very accurate too, according to my tuner looking at the ECU readouts for boost.

Thanks for all the photos too. I was about the buy the remote sender kit for the oil pressure sender until I saw how small the unit was in your photos. I believe the Halo series come with the small sender too so now I just need the galley plug adapter! Yay!

Sounds good man, nice job so far!
The sender has been doing well for the past 2 years without an issue. The gauge is relatively accurate. I feel it's a pound off but after having it for two years, you just know that it's always a pound off.

Cheers!

Bump for a question

How much would would you ballpark the cost of having something like this done? I thought it would be relatively simple but it's not something I'd want to try doing myself.

With cost, I mean for all of the installation/customizing that needs to go on with the wires, and labor for removing/putting back together the dash.

Car looks amazing though man.

Thanks Brandon,
I would think it would be somewhere around a few hundred. Do you have the gauges already? Are you looking at getting a pod too?
The install takes roughly 4-5 hrs depending on their speed and shops per/hr fee.

Take a 3 hr ride up here and lets do them together

Don't tempt me haha. I already drove 8 hour round trip to swap trunks .


I currently don't have any gauges. I was asking because in the near future, I would like to buy the ATI clock pod, but saw that the fitment was horrendous. I was calling around to see how much certain places would charge to wrap the top of the dash (after pod was installed) to give it that uniform look.

If my math is correct, for the pod + gauges, I should be paying in the ballpark of around 730 bucks (boost, oil temp or pressure, and probably egt).

I just don't have the technical know how to be installing gauges + re-wiring anything, yet

Where in Maine are you from?

I would honestly take you up on this offer one day if it still exists. I have a friend who lives in Maine and I'm about 5-6 hours away and would come up for the day to do something like this if I'm ever visiting him up there. I'm so retarded when it comes to anything electrical, I probably couldn't even do the simplest wiring if I had to, just seems so complicated.

The sender you will unplug and remove. The wire can be zip-tied back as it is not used anymore. The light will remain off.
