I just ordered the same gauages this week. Also a 4" exhaust. I will then be ready to chip my 00 for some power!!CrazyHorse said:I have a pre turbo pyro, boost, and oil temp, all VDO vision series (match the stock instrumentation, as they are backlit with a fiberoptic lit pointer, justlike my 93's stock instruments) I have them in an autometer pillar pod.
I would go with a different boost gauge, the one you linked to is for a gas motor, since it has vacuum and boost. You want a gauge that starts at 0 psi and goes up from there. Not sure how much boost the PS gets, I can hit 36 but I think the Fords tend to run a little lower. (Check with someone that has a similar setup to yours.)InfantryYJ said:

Now what's this restriction gauge that you're talking about?
Yes and the same reason for running a diff. temp gauge. My RTO15715 runs about 190*s pulling easy. Start pulling hard and it's 215*- 225*. If the trans hits 250* I'm pulling over and let the trans cool off before it does major damage. When a manual trans is to hot you start spining bearing races and other bad things. The one I replaced last year had got to hot and trashed the trans housing. I had the temp gauge hooked up when they put the new trans in as the diff gauges and trans gauge was inop when I bought the truck.Keith Strong said:Dumb question...does a manual need a guage? I would think not?
