Not bad, but if your worried about having to look away and at the gauges you might want to reconsider that one....

Its a bit farther away than the a pillar.

I'm not worried about looking away....just an option to keep the handle in place.

I like my 3 pod a-pillar even though I had to sacrifice my handle :/. I like that it looks like it is from the factory.

I think any other gauge locations or mounts look tacky personally.

JAM, I never use that handle. Never have in any of my trucks. No loss for me. However, I could see some wanting to keep it there.

Mike, Thanks Bud!

Two questions for you big guy.
What fuel pressure we stock 6.7L 4th gen run at with stock lift pump?

Why did you get a 60psi boost gauge? My stock HE351VGT turbo has only see maximum of 43 psi of boost so far. Once I get the S478 under the stocker, I could see slightly more.

I'm seeing around 13psi idling and low RPM. Drops to around 10 WOT.

60psi.... Hmmm..... well, future expansion.

That is a consideration for sure. I have the overhead mount and it takes a bit more effort to watch gauges if you need to be keen on any changes.

Another option would be dash mount. I have seen a few of these and they look pretty smart too. The pod mounts on the dash between the defrost vents, not sure on the new Gen4's how it sits exactly.

The thing about the H&S black maxx, is you just set the defuels and you can forget watching the gauges. To me, I've run both, both the analog and digital gauges work, sure beats not having any gauges.

I can't wait till we get EFI, so we can get the ablity to some data aquision and have better tuning ablity for fuel/air maps that whats currently available. Just throwing this out, but my 07 300 srt car, with the diablo tuner, I could add timing/fuel, extra rpm and adjust map sensors, with that tuner. With any of the aftermarket tuners that are out for the 4th gen dodge, you just get to adjust small things only very slightly.

Blake:

Very sexy gauge package. I am interested in your fuel pressure gauge in particular. What readings would be considered normal, and what source did you tap for the sending unit? Also, is it isolated or is there a pressure line running into the cab?

TIA

Im seeing about 13-14 psi at idled and running hard it drop to about 10.

The Isspro setup is all electronic, it has a sending unit that sends the reading to the gauge.

I have a Glacier Diesel 2micron fuel filter kit with the big line setup. That kit came with a sending unit "tee" and I spliced it into the line for the sender.

Blake, I would run a pulsation snubber. We find that those autometer pressure gauges don't last very long without one. I just use a cheap needle valve for my snubber.
