Oil pressure monitoring.
Posted 10 April 2012 - 10:59 PM
Being that I refuse to let something like oil pressure kill my brand new engine, I was looking for options of reliable gauges. Defi seemed to be the brand that the 500+hp guys on nasioc were running. However at $160 for the gauge, plus the sender, the adapter for the engine... too much money.
Another name that I'd come across on there was ProSport. Initially, the feedback was bad for them, however it seems in 2010 they turned their act around, and people have been very pleased with them from 2011 onwards. So I purchased a 52mm "Performance" oil pressure gauge, and the oil galley plug.
Including shipping, it was about $80, and should be here Thursday. I'll report back with fitment, installation, and how well it works after I get it all installed.
Also I'm curious what other people are using for monitoring.

I also think their gauges look better than most others on the market, but I don't get into all that flashy colorful blinged out stuff most other people like.

I used a Prosport galley adapter, moved the stock oil light sender to the rear galley plug, and put the Autometer sender in the front galley. I wanted to be able to easily check it for leaks and was able to avoid using a relocation line.

I know this thread is old but how are the prosport gauges holding on?
I'm between the prosport and the Autometer Spot Comp II oil pressure gauges.
