    im a gauge n00b, info please

    I am getting ready to order the Omori 60mm WRX-look gauges.....EGT, boost, and oil pressure to be exact. It recommends buying the GReddy sandwich adapter as well, to make install easier. How difficult is it to do these gauges? I have no experience at all, and a few of my friends arent too sure how to do it either. I have a blitz DTT that has a boost gauge reading.....will i need to disable the boost gauge for that to hook up the omori boost gauge? Any help, hints, or tips would be GREATLY appreciated.....dont wanna get in over my head, haha. Thanks

    pertaining to the boost and blitz dtt, i think you can have both show boost. a friend has that setup, only with a stock boost gauge instead. both work fine. i just never understood why you need two boost gauges.

    as for installation, theres a couple threads on scoobymods that i've been looking at. it doesn't really look that bad.

    be sure to post pics when your done
    good luck

    I think the hardest part will be tapping the manifold for the EGT. I'm sitting on a similar setup right now. I need to pick up the greddy sandwich. That thing has two holes in it, right? One for temp and one for pressure?

    what is the greddy sandwich?

    as for egt though, its not hard, but a lot of work. i think the best spot is to tap the number 2 or 4 exhaust manifold (stock headers) tube. all you have to do is take off the manifold (header), drill hole, tap, insert sensor and put it all back on. make sure to get rid of all shavings and your done.

    as for oil pressure, dunno for sure. i think you can just put it in the drain plug.

    edit - this might help even though its on a non turbo rs

    Greddy makes an adaptor that goes between the oil filter and the block that has adaptors for both Oil pressure and Oil temp. It's only like $60 or so, and can be installed with your next oil change for free if you've run the other wires.
    Those fools, EVO vs. STi??? That's like comparing ....wait a minute...there's no comparison. The Suby's still working!!! The evo...well... I hope he got the extended warranty.

    I bought the threaded plug for the rear oil gallery (under the intercooler) and stuck my temp sensor in there. I remember reading somewhere that the sandwich adapter reads the temp after it goes through the oil cooler, and that the oil gallery is a better indicator of actual oil temp inside the engine. Plus the sandwich adapter lowers the filter a little bit. My $0.02.
