I used one of these types for a couple of weeks before buying a tach/water temp combined one from the same company.

 

worked perfectly, looked snazzy, still relatively new to the market so remain cheap and came with sender,various sender reducers and most importantly english feckin instructions :pancake:

 

clicky

 

all you need do is buy the appropriate tee piece for your conection point :thumb:

I forgot to mention, I use only that particular companies plasma gauges (two of them visable in my sig)

 

Ive got, airflow, water temp/tach combined and volts.....theyve never put a foot wrong so far so I can atleast recommend them.

Tidy job, will maybe get me some of those :thumb:

 

where have you mounted/fitted your sensor/sender which pipe?

 

 

The original first one to the rad bottom pipe as close as I dared to the block.

 

but I figured that was just more work than it needed to be one the second one (plus Id replaced the rad pipe)and went for the matrix feed (again as close to the block as possible) which you mentioned.

 

It worked quite well as the sender that comes with it doesn't unduly obstruct the pipe itself (its thinner and shorter than what Id used before)

I'll prob use a matrix feed then or whichever would seem to be the place with a most reliable truth of engine temps.

 

What about pillar pods? are they pretty much universal? obv measurements for witdth etc, I'm wanting ones that will be as flush as possible.

 

after a tripple, or maybe 2 doubles

pillar pods are typically designed for the standardized size of smaller gauges, which is 52mm usually.

 

the one I linked you too is a 52mm and so will nearly most all you see on ebay (unless stated otherwise obviously), the only exception to that rule are Tachometer(Revs) or Speedo's which are normally larger for obvious reasons

no no, i mean the fit to the pillar, I kno about the size of the gauges etc. pillar measurements I was on about :D

 

 

If you mean "do all pods fit all cars" then the answer is no.

 

there are universals flying about that in theory are adaptable to all angle's of pillar and inner trim size.....but the theory rarely lives up to its claims in reality.

 

the more popular and common the car however, the more likely you are of finding purpose molded pods.......... which is why you can find just about feckin anythin for a escort. :pancake:

Both need adapters to fit the senders in
