    Default autometer gauges

    didnt know where to post this? I'm looking for an autometer gauge that says intercooler on it. I want to see my psi for the intercooler. Yes I know a pressure relief should be used. I thought I saw a gauge like this long time ago. Any help?

    why? do you want to know the pressure above and below the intercooler ?? they say it is 3# less below the cooler so go up on your drives after installing by 3# thats what i did... now i would like to see an air temp guage setup that was split like two guages in one for a top and bottom reading

    top and bottom reading would be nice.
    I was actually wanting to know the water pressure in the intercooler at WOT

    how do you have it plumbed . i went with the way must of the guys here told me run another pickup,mines on my cavitation plate#12 split into 2-#10 then dump 2-#10 out overboard you really shouldnt have pressure unless your restricted , butyou should have lots of flow volume. believe it or not teague and bds couldnt give me any info just there copy overed print tells you nothing. the guys at cp performance seem to know alot more my opinion ,the othern way of doing it is to run a raw water pump drive but then you will run into pressure problems which may give you an internal leak within the chiller ,,,water = cabooooom

    I have it force feed, bottom. -16 in to a dan olsen oil cooler then a -12 coming out and going into the intercooler -12 out... so basicaly 12 in 12 out. figured if I have the same size in the same size shoud be going out. I was just curious because the bottom pickup is shaved to a 1/4". so wanted to be on the safe side. I'm just going to run a regular water psi guage to see how much pressure i have, and if I don't have enough, i'll change to an angle pick up.

    From what I've read you would want cool water going to both
    coolers, I would believe your getting warm water to the intercooler after going thru the oil cooler. IMO

    you guys really think that at that kind of volume and at the speed it goes in and out it has time to heat the water that much

    teague = the builder of superchiller reccomends a #12 in a #12 out there is no restriction or pressure because the inner cooling coil has the same flow so the faster you go = volume in / volume out if you use a drive pickup,, if you pump it it in yes pressure regulator for sure under 20# im folloing the advise of a long time superchiller user on this one i do not want a leaker into my engine and from what i understand you do not want the chiller going while idleing it causes the fuel to re condense and cause fuel flooding puddling?? let me know if you ever find those gages

    basically I have a -12 into the cooler and -12 out.
    Best thing I found is a guage for water psi, I think 20# is what the pressure should be when going kinda fast?
