EV2's Installed

My Pricol pyro started acting up this past winter, and after a few tows with it acting funny it was time to give it the boot. I really wanted a matched set, so I sold the other 4 Pricol's and ordered up a set of 5 ISSPRO EV2's.

I have been wanting to change the locations of my a couple gauges and add a time delay relay for a while, so this worked out well.

I had the alarms set to where I want them, which is a GREAT feature of the EV2.

Boost 0-40, warning > 38 psi

EGT 0-1600°, warning >1300°

Fuel Pressure 0-20, warning <3 psi

Oil Pressure 0-100, warning <15 psi

Exhaust Backpressure 0-100, warning >65 psi

The gauges came with the dimmer and that made install VERY easy. You are able to daisy chain them, and I was able to route the wiring from the dimmer knob to the Oil in the A-Pillar, to EGT, Boost, Fuel on the dash and down to DP by the trailer brake controller.

Previouslly the EGT was in the A-Pillar, and Boost/Fuel/Oil were on the dash, with DP down by the brake controller. I liked DP by the controller as I mainly use it for the exhaust brake, and next to the brake controller made sense. What I wanted to do was put Boost/EGT next to each other on the dash and move oil to the A-Pillar.

Additionally I have been wanting to add a time delay relay to the gauges. I don't like how when you start the truck the gauges reset and readings have to wait on the gauge to power back up. I got a TDR from a friend of mine, and wired all 5 EV2 to it. Now the ignition has to be off for about 2 minutes before the gauges shutoff. This does 2 things I like, it allows quicker and more accurate oil/fuel pressure readings during and after start and it lets me monitor EGT's after shutting the motor off. If they really climb I can tell I didn't allow enough cooling time.

All in all I like the EV2's. I still think some of the markings on the Pricol's were better, and a mechanical boost gauge is much smoother than an electric one. The boost gauge does read about 1 psi lower than the ECM sees, but I think that's due to being at 3K feet elevation. But overall these are great gauges, and very precise!

Here you are.. Flash makes it glare, and too dark for a decent no flash pic, but you get the idea. What do you run for gauges dork? [ATTACH=CONFIG]4145[/ATTACH]

Autometer UltraLites.......EGT, boost, and Lift pump Also run the digital RP gauge..........the manufacturerer escapes me now.

Thanks for the SCREAMIN deal on them!! No worries on the time frame, I realize it was out of your hands. It's nice to have them, and was worth the wait for the warning lights.

So what's this about warning lights? I have EV2's also but mine have no warnings. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

I am not sure when they added them, but the EV2's have a red LED at the 6 O'Clock position you can have go off at whatever pressure/temp you want. Right now they have to be programmed, but rumor is that ISSPRO will soon be releasing a "programmer" for them, so guys like dieselautopower can do it for you.
