    whatever system it is, the p/e transducers are costly, and balloon the cost if you want a lot of data inputs.
    for what you're doing, the edelbrock system through mpd is about the best out there for the price, imo...

    Right now the edelbrock system is hard to beat for our application. Good sensors are about $220 each, so yes the cost will quickly escalate with 4 - 6 sensors.

    Basic four sensor system will run in the neighborhood of $2000. This will get you a good start on most of the information that you will need. Jack at MPD can handle this for you.

    If your looking to just monitor EGTs then you can go with Altronics (1000 bucks at summit). It will monitor all 8 cylinders. If you just want to monitor 1 or 2 then you can go with a Percy.

    My oldman has a computech. It monitors, all 8 EGTs, G meter, 2 RPM inputs, Boost, Fuel Pressure and probably a couple more I'm missing.. He said he has over 3200 bucks invested in it..

    Seams like alot of the jetboat guys use the edelbrock system, probably because MPD sets it up. I've been noticing racepak systems though lately. Also heard alot of good things about them. I asked this question a while back, do a search for my username and the word data

    Default mpd's edelbrock system

    Mpd's edelbrock system is the way to go. some of the newer systems have a lot of bells and whistles that dont apply to us jet boat guys. the edelbrock system keeps it simple. the KISS method for jet boats.
    Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!

    I plan to put additional sensors on my FAST XFI engine management computer. It will data log as many as you can install. It cost the same or less than the Edelbrock and will manage your engine as well.

    I would buy one from Jack if I was not going this route.

    That's what I thought, You're just reading a 0-5 volt range on the sensors.
    How could a stand alone datalogger cost more than a whole ECU ?

    I'm looking forward to the day when the ECU connects to the cell phone and you can remote datalog and tune from across the country.

    i to am thinking about buying a set-up from MPD when my new boat is done.

    i have seen a system in action and found it very cool,plus for some reason it doesn't lie.

    I'm trying to find the time to install the ECU before the twin turbo and just datalog with it.

    My datalogging is provided by GM's 0411 and EFI Live
    Works great, and I can input several other external analog channels.

    i too like the quikdata unit...but i bought my stuff from www.motorsportsinnovations.com ...the basic kit is around $800, and $145 per sensor...and if you call him and talk to him and buy at least 3 sensors he will give you a better deal on them...i paid $125 a sensor...imo $1200 for a kit with 3 sensors is a pretty good deal
