Installing Turbo Boost Gauge & Madman EGT

Postby SJC » 17 Sep 2015 11:44

Hi Guys,

I bought a madman with egt probe and oil pressure sensor from a fellow forum member.
I'm busy looking for a turbo gauge. Might be getting this one: http://www.autostyle.co.za/car-accessor ... gauge.html

What all do you need to install the turbo gauge? Autosyle told me that the gauge comes with a t-connector and a silicone pipe.
(This all you need to connect it?).

Does anyone care to share a few pointers or even a pic or two on how to install a turbo boost gauge and a madman EGT & Oil pressure sensor?

hi Fanus, ek kan jou nie help met die boost guage nie want my turbo werk anders. maar ja, daai is al wat jy nodig het op die boost guage. die EGT gauge en probe is biekie meer complicated. en as jy genoeg moed het om self n gat in jou manifold te boor moet jy net seker maak dat jy die kar laat idle terwyl jy boor. boor stadig sodat al die saagsels kan uit blaas. dink dis n 8mm boor as ek reg onthou. en dan n 1/8ste tap wat jy nodig het vir die fitting van die probe. kry n plek op jou manifold maklik bekombaar, verkieslik waar al die silinder pype by mekaar kom. voor die turbo. as jy die fitting in het. stood die probe tot teen die oorkant van die manifold en trek hom dan so 10mm terug en maak vas.
dra veiligheids brille. die saagsel spat woes terug. dit raak warm na die einde se kant toe en vat ook gereelde breuke want die exhaust fumes begin jou choke op n stadium. en moenie die probe kabel knak nie. as jy als in het en jy toets hom en die temp is negatied in plaas van positief, ruil net die drade om. sterkte.

hiers my prober slag met die madman.

:think:
Lyk hierdie probe nog bruikbaar? Die skroefdraard is bietjie beskadig maar daar is seker maniere hier om?
Dit lyk of die draad geknak het. Moet daai "ringetjie" om die probe wees?

Feedback from madman regarding probe fitment:


"The brass "olive" must be there, it becomes locked on the shaft after the nut is tightened the first time.

Yes, you can buy a replacement fitting - it is here :

http://madman.co.za/index.php/products1 ... on-fitting

You would need to file the brass "olive" off the probe and slide it off to fit the new fitting."

HI Fanus,

ja daai brass fitting ( ferrel) grip die probe en die fitting vas aan mekaar hoe stywer jy hom draai, hoe meer hou hy vas. die res lyk wiele :thumbup:

Moet sê ek is bietjie skrikkerig vir hierdie instellasie, sal maar eers van alles mooi seker maak voor ek die aan pak.
Ek het die "compression fitting" by madman gekoop, wag net vir aflewering. Die fitting kos R61, die afleweringsfooi is R121.. :think:

From my past experience, just looking at your probe wires, don't even think of using that probe. One thing you must never do is to bend the wires anywhere close to 90 deg. The wires on your probe look way beyond that - check the thread on this forum "Madman / Landy on Line" and get yourself a new probe from Brian. I wouldn't trust the readings coming off that probe. :thumbdown:

Thanks Tony, i mailed Brian(madman) about this, here is his response:

"The kink could be a problem, however, the cables are well insulated so it is unlikely that they are touching inside.

The probe works by simply joining the two wires in the tip of the probe, so, if they are touching at the kink, the measuring point is now at the kink rather than in the tip.

To test this, fit the probe to the unit and power it up. Heat the tip with a lighter, it should go from ambient temp to a few hundred deg quickly.."

I will test it first :salute:

How long would it take a place like steves to install the EMS2 unit & EGT probe?

Josh, hoe lank het dit jou gevat om te doen?
