Re: Gauges

EGT you shouldn't let get past 1250 for any extended period, tranny temp I wouldn't let get over 240 but if you get up to 190 regularly you might wanna get a bigger cooler to keep them down and you should be fine on boost I think you don't run into trouble until like over 35#. That's what I go by anyhow other ppl may have slightly different numbers to give you. Good luck!

I'd go with a 40psi boost guage personally, since you can exceed 30 with a stock turbo. I would want to know how far past 30, and if you keep it at about 30psi or below your turbo will be happy.

Re: Gauges

have you guys with the ISSPRO trans gauges ever have a problem with the gauge jumping around alot? Mine goes to 180 after a while (normal), then it'll shoot up to 320 then 2 seconds later jumpback down to like 190, then up again, then low again. I'm pretty sure it's an electronic interference, because when I turn my headlights on, it goes back to normal. Any ideas? other than that, I LOVE the ISSPRO gauges on the a-pillar.

What version of gauges do you have? I would bet if they are the EV line that there is a loose connection at the amp box. Also check your connection to the sender at the tranny. Unplug it and fill the plug with dielectric grease. Reinstall and your issue will go away.

The EV line is not really susceptible to interference but it could happen. But it sounds like a ground issue.

Re: Gauges

I've had mine jump around a few times before. The first time was a loose connection at the amp box. The other times it was moisture in the electrical connection at the sending unit in the tranny. Cleaned it out with some WD-40 and blew it dry with a shot of air from the air compressor and all was back to normal.
