They appear on ebay occasionally. Fantastic bits of kit

What gauges are you going for? I've got oil temp, oil pressure and boost

Got mine from fleebay as iggy calls it. Oil temp, Water temp, and Boost gauge, one was £30, another £40, and the most expensive one was £50, all three for less than the price of one new, beat that. I bought the link meter new £123. Again on ebay, from japan, they're still on there I was looking the other day for two more.

As careful as I was with warming up & cooling down my RB320, I didn't have any gauges fitted & think I always gave more of a warm up than was required.

But with them as standard in the GTR, I wouldn't be without them & it displays & monitors so much;

Oil temp,

Oil pressure,

Water temp,

Transmission temp & pressure,

Fuel flow & pressure,

Braking force G,

Lateral G,

Steering angle, to name but a few!! :biggrin:

 

Get as many gauges fitted as you can. The Toucan kit is very good & used by a lot of modified high power builds from - http://www.jti.uk.com

Difficult to say, but dependant on cold start temperature.... I used to give circa 7-10 miles before going over 2500 rpm!

 

I also changed my oil & filter every 6 months, (3.5-4k miles).

When re-built, not only was the clutch & fly wheel in near perfect condition, the engine internals looked like new, with NO oil stain! :good:

But  still up-graded to an AP Organic clutch, seeing as it was out!!

All of which i'm sure the new owner is appreciating :wink:

Mine came fitted with an Boost, Oil Pres, Oil Temp gauge over the clock which was nice!

Would a defi water temp gauge not read the same as the standard dash temp gauge?
