Re: GLOWSHIFT GAUGE INPUT??

Had em. Boost was accuarte but a little slow compared to my Snow Performance digital but I liked it. The Tranny seemed to be alrite, but EGT was constantly off in the higher range by 200-400 degrees. Said 1,400 degrees pulling my boat at 65mph on flat land and stock settings and injectors. My buddys had the same luck.

My fuel pressure gauge seems to work just fine.

Re: GLOWSHIFT GAUGE INPUT??

with comparing my temps with other trucks, mine seem to be off. I used to stand behind them, but when it came down to verifying them for accuracys... id say save up for better.

Re: GLOWSHIFT GAUGE INPUT??

Had the black face 3-1 gauge for a while. when the sun was shining the gauge was too dark to read. Then it started being a crap shoot whether or not it would work. I checked all my connections several times, sometimes it worked, sometimes not. All connections were soldered and heat shrinked from day one.
Finally gave up and bought Autometers.

What brand gauge were you comparing yours to ? Were you temps higher or lower than the other gauge ?
