I don't know if it would make another aeroforce anymore tempting; but i looked on their website today and they now offer sensors for oil or fuel pressure that hook up to the analog leads on the gauge.

Pull the pod and drill the hole ... you know you want it. Why not make it happen?

I started out making one pod next to my hud and now plans have it becoming two.

Just read this on aeroforces website

Two Interceptors can be purchased with a special splitter
cable that allows both gauges to operate simultaneously. A triple gauge set can be
purchased through special order.

Triple gauge set......

I thought about going to a double gauge but now that I'm pretty good at toggling thru and knowing when the values I need to see come up, makes it easy.

I would like the Autometer Boost gauge, if only for it'* Peak reading capability and playback feature.

That being said, I haven't done much playing with the Aeroforce recording features yet.
That could give you all that is needed to determine peak Boost.

I also haven't tried the Performance feature that works from a dead stop to give performance times.


It don't have engine oil temp though.......

Do you think engine oil temp is something we need to be concerned with?
I understand the boost to see if you are using or stacking. Always good to know.

Have you considered using the two analog inputs on the Aeroforce for things like the oil temp? Looks pretty straight forward if you pick up a sensor and run a wire.

Yes, I think engine oil temperature is something I would like to monitor.

I am fascinated by the reactions of this SC outlet temp gauge, as an example.

Interesting that the temperature increase is linear with the speed of the Blower even under vacuum conditions.
The air is obviously heating up going round the bypass.

The differential temperature at 1500 rpm is +70 F
As the revs climb to 3000 the delta T goes to +90 F
4500 ..... +110 F
6000.................I've hit the spray long before that happens........so far the gauge has not shown higher than 160 F with an IAT of 50 F.

With the spray on for a full throttle run, the temp never goes above a delta T of +30F

Interesting data. Good data for the Gen V community.

I also plan a temp gauge, through the aeroforce though.

Still have to wire it in.
Look at the size of the connectors on each end of the wire loom. I have to try and pass the small end thru the firewall boot. I won't be easy.
Any suggestions

Take a picture of how the wires are in the connector. Then, using a pick remove the wires from the connector. Each tip on the wire will have a little tab that holds it in the connector. If done properly you can remove the wire/tab w/o harming it. Slide wires through the hole in firewall and magic. Then put the connector back on by simply clicking the wires back into place.

I tried to take it apart but couldn't find where the tab on each connector was.

I'll try again and use a magnifying glass and some strong lighting. Next time I'll take off my sunglasses .
