autometer gauge

so when i bought my truck it came with a boost autometer gauge and a pyro pro-comp ultra lite gauge, but there was no sensor hooked up to the pyro guage. Im trying to find the correct sensor that will work with this gauge to see if the gauge is still working correctly(praying, so it'll save me $100)

Re: autometer gauge

Ultra lite:
Gauges - Ultra-Lite

ultra lite II:
Gauges - Ultra-Lite II

The pyrometer sender is typically installed in the drivers exhaust manifold (correct location), some people also put them in the downpipe just aft the turbo (this is not correct)
You may have to call Autometer or send them a note...they are VERY helpful just need to know exactly what gauge you have. Some of the autometer pyro's use a big black box under the dash to accept the signals from the pyro and send them to the gauge so be sure to check the wires from the gauge and where they go (you may find the pyrometer wrapped up under there??)
I am going through the same thing on our excursion, came with a trans temp gauge and no sender

Re: autometer gauge

Don't recommend installing pyro in the downpipe.
That's noob/bad advice.

Re: autometer gauge

its definitely the first version of the ultra lite, and i pulled the original two gauge pillar and installed my four gauge pillar, and i removed the previous owners hack job of wiring he did for the gauges. i also found that he had actually tapped both manifolds and the downpipe right next to the turbine side of the turbo() i just dont remember if there was a sensor in any of them (this was three weeks ago i checked) so ill have to look, but by any chance do you know what new sensor i would need to order, or would it be best to just call them?

Re: autometer gauge

best to call them there are way too many variations of their gauges. Its very likely they all use a similar sensor and it may be cheaper just to buy a new EGT setup BUT they will tell you this info is hard to find online....I have been in these shoes a couple times over the years....working back ass wards through somebody else wiring mess without a phone call we are just guessing!

FYI I am VERY happy with my ISSPRO EGT gauge

Re: autometer gauge

^i see they usually go for around 60$ which i would rather pay than $168 for a new gauge and probe when all i need is a probe.
