I'm looking at installing oil pressure and oil temp digital guages below the stereo.
What do I need the oil temp gauge to read to? 110'c or more?
I've know what I'm doing with the sandwich plate, that's fine.

0 to 150 pressure and temp or thereabouts.
Max temp 110 at a push 115...depending on oil used.
Ideally you want see oil above 80deg c normal running.
And pressure above 100psi on a pull...its idling that was my concern at 850 idle rpm oil pressure is low..on my car in the teens hence the 1100 rpm i have.

Ok cheers ill look into it.
It hesitated really bad changing gear accelerating hard yesterday. Need to try and figure out what it could be.

Is that what you meant by the regulator mod boosted?

It was hesitant after changing gear for a split second when the throttle was flat down

Standard precat o2 sensor should give you the fuel trims. The pre and post 02 sensor are different...got the right 1 ?
Are you still having some gremlins?

It was just out of curiosity really. Definitely right sensor or I wouldn't be getting afr readings.
Things went OK tonight, took it for a run. Badly need new tyres, these are death traps. Rear breaks loose without reason on small corners.

Still waiting on a vid or 2 ? Nothing incriminating of course!
