Default Omori gauge review thread.

Starting this thread for reviews of the Omori line of gauges.

Here is a picture of my WRX-look installed gauges:


And here is my write up of how to use the gallery ports for the oil temperature and pressure senders:

Either here:

Oil temperature and pressure sender installation.

or here:

Oil temperature and pressure sender installation. (PDF)

Questions on installation should be posted in a tech forum. PM me with the URL or e-mail me at ed@turboice.net with questions.

Each of these were purchased from J-Spec Tuning (an Omori USA authorized dealer). Thaison there is extremely helpful and informative.

A bit more on the gauges:

80mm turbo/EGT gauge - very responsive and steady, boost level and EGT are easily picked out driving day or night

52mm gauges - also responsive and steady, sensible labeling to make for quick reading

All of them - great match to cluster lighting

52mm DIN panel - good fit, one suggestion you can make it much cleaner than my hack job if you install from inside the pod from the back of the face area rather than the method I selected from the front.

Where did it go!



BTW that should be put in quotes, inside joke - a famous tuner actually asked that question on a dyno.

Nice looking setup.

The only issue I've had with my Omori gauges is that they tend to fog up during sudden temp. changes. For example, leaving your heated garage in the winter. The fog will dissipate after about 15 minutes of driving though.

Any time Mike, thought I pointed that out at Pruven when we were talking. Wish I had mentioned it then.

I need to rewrite the piece I think because I get that question a lot.

The existing front plug is 1/8 PT (exactly the same as 1/8 BSPT - PT is just the Japanese reference), yes you can just remove the existing idiot light sensor and put either the Omori temp sender or the coupler for the remote sender directly in. The pressure sender that came with mine is a different thread (M10 I think) but the coupler for the remote hose is 1/8 PT. The oil temp sender can be put in directly since it is 1/8 PT.

The idiot light sender is normally closed so that means when the wire to it is grounded the light is on - if you remove the stock sender and cover the stock wire your oil light will not be on at all.

Omori does make an optional 1/8 PT tee which I got but that would not permit the stock sender to remain active but I have not put it on yet since I see no reason with a pressure gauge to have the light.

Ugh, I participated in hi-jacking my own thread. Lets keep this as a product review. Any other tech questions should be put in that forum. If you have questions about the installation PM me with the tech thread URL or e-mail me at ed@turboice.net

So Mike what do you think of your Omori gauges?

yes good call.

So far just the boost gauge is operational, but i love it.

I could only find a 1/4 x 1/4 x 1/4 T for the boost (of course I found the proper 1/4 1/4 1/8 this weekend)

I got a length of 1/4 tubing so I didn't have to cut the stock BOV hose.

Over 8k miles and no quivering of the needle. However they do fog up in the rain if the humidity is just right. But it doesn't impeed reading of the gauges, just doesn't look nice. LOL

100% glad I got them. The extra cash for an OEM look was well spent. The oil gauge goes in this week and the EGT will go in when the new turbo gets here. No sense in ripping apart the uppipe twice.

Thaison has 6mmX6mmX6mm tees with the brass fitting in stock and on his site, order one.

Doh! Just checked he doesn't have the description just the omori part number P-94 - it is a 6mm tee though. I also think I have one laying around, remind to me to look for it if you are ever going to be around JC.
