Question gauge sensors and senders?

Do all guage manufactures include the wiring and sender/sensors when you buy their guages? I get the impression Greddy does. Do the others do the same? Thinking about adding a console pod with guages.

Some do, others dont. I know autometer sells some of their egt gauges w/o sensors. Even for Defi/Greddy gauges, some of their included hardware arent the right size(i.e. wrong boost tee, no fuel pressure tee at all)

make sure you double check what extra's you'll need when ordering. yeah the biggest pain is the greddy/defi fuel pressure. a lot of the JDM gauges have weird threading too, but everything can be found at omori.com.

My Defi BF's came with all the sensors, but as HS WRB-rex said, some of the fittings were not the appropriate size.

Usually the best thing is to do the install while the parts shops are open. Take everything appart to find out what you're going to need, and then swing by a Pepboys or something and grab all your adapters.

Things like taps, and OEM bungs are something you're gonna want to have ahead of time. You can find what you'll need with a search on your specific application.

This is good stuff you guys are providing. What size T-fitting would I need for a boast guage. I know subaru sells an oil galley fitting for an oil pressure gauge that fits the greddy sensor. Is there a vendor that knows whats required for a REX and sell everything so I don't have to run to the store? I'm leaning towards greddy cause they have 52mm gauges that almost match the stock gauges. Is amori a better and cheaper guage?

boost gauge is 1/4in. x (whatever your gauge sender needs) x 1/4 in. Greddy is 3/16in on its end. IMO, I would just find the info here and get the gauges from the vendor with best prices, rather than finding a compromise.

Thanks for the T fitting size HS WRB-rex. Can you or someone tell me where I can attach an oil temperature sender. I think the subaru gauge pack has an adapter for the oil drain plug. Is there a better way besides adding a threaded boss to the oil pan or is this adapter available from some one else?

The oil pan is the most accurate location to take an oil temp reading from. You can buy sandwitch plates that fit between your filter and block. They'll have two holes, so you can mount your oil pressure gauge there too.

BTW, the Defi boost pressure sender will require a 1/4x3/16x1/4 tee, just like the Greddy if anyone else comes across this in a search.

I highly advise you to get an EGT gauge also. I believe it is the 2nd most important gauge to get for WRXs

Chunky_Chicken: Who sells a sandwich plate that fits between the oil filter and block for a WRX?

HS WRB-rex: I have read many threads on the importance of the EGT gauge, but I assumed that applies to individuals who mod their engine.

When I installed my Greddy boost gauge, I was bummed to see that the T-fitting that came with it was a joke. I went and got a universal T at a parts store for $2. Problem solved.

Defi.

From the PKZero site:
DEFPDF00709S SUBARU IMPREZA 2002 OIL TEMP/PRESS SENSOR ADAPTER PLATE MANUAL TRANS
93.50
DEFPDF00710S SUBARU IMPREZA 2002 OIL TEMP/PRESS SENSOR ADAPTER PLATE AUTO TRANS 112.20

PKZero

I don't know why there is a difference between the auto and manual though.

Thumbs up

Thanks for the info Pete. Still not sure about really needing an EGT gauge for a stock engine.
