Oil Gauge presure monitor.
 
Hi, I was woundering which oil presure reading method would be better to do from the two bellow?

Filter Sandwich

or

in block sensor.

The filter sandwich looks simple to do, but block sensor worries me that I will be removing the stock sensor, wich I would rather not do, and I dont want to tap. What you guys think?

Sandwich works fine I have one...

Cool thanks, Another question, is the glow shift gages any good? Thats the gages they guy used in the tutrial and from what I read they are good budget gages? (I want a boost gage and oil pressure gage to keep track of what my car is doing)

Hah that reminds me...I need to order one of those setups soon :)

jssaab 08-31-2010 01:17 PM

yeah they are fine I got my sandwhich plate from them

Cool, time to drop 150$ in gages in sandwiches >.>

I heard of multiple people complaining of the led's being way to bright at night and way to control the brightness

soviet911 09-01-2010 01:18 PM

I'm Pretty sure the back light is on separte power connection so you can attach a dimmer to it some how. At least I seen some where in a guide a person do that.

But on other note, whats the presure specifications for saab engine (Platanof said he reads 20psi at idle and 40psi a 2000 rpm) is there info on what PSI oil presure you suppose to get and at what RPM? would make it nice to diagnose early low pressure issues...

Yup thats right for the pressures you should see. Ambient temp once warmed up, oil viscosity, and motor wear and tear will add their deviations to what you actually see.

I have my gauge tapped of the factory oil sender location.




soviet911 09-03-2010 11:37 AM

So whats the lowest accpetable PSI? if i remeber corectly low pressure light goes off at 6 psi or so, and I read that most saab mechanis will drop the engine the moment it hits 10 psi? Any links that would describe that or any info on that? :confused:

Is it worth the hassle to tap the factor sender? Would you recommend it to someone who has only tapped aluminum a few times?
