anyone fitted one to a zlet or know how to, this is somthing ive never done and really dont know where to start.
I've just fitted one to my coupe turbo mate, was a bit of a problem as the sump plug on Z20 LET's has a star socket inside it which means you can't put the sensor in there as usual. I put mine in a plug by the oil pump, its a bit hard to see unless your underneath the car. Basically just removed the plug, drill a hole, taped & dyed the correct thread size and screwed my sensor in. Bit of silicone sealer and it was job done.
To wire the guage up i just got the power off the cigereatte lighter wires ( so they came on with the ignition ) then ran them up the back of the dash. My guage requires one +v and -V to light it and another for the sensor. As the sensor works on the basis of the senor being a variable resistor, so as the temperature increases, the sensor draws more current( as the sensor should be earthed) therefore the guage rises, simple mate. Hope this was of some help.
Matt - you can't get pressure off the sump plug location - only temperature. Is your gauge a temp or pressure guage (or a fancy SPA one with both?).Originally Posted by mattcoupturbo
You are right though - for pressure, there should be a spare connection with a blank in it off the oil pump. IIRC, it is a funny size, so you may need to fabricate your own adapter to connect the sensor there.

lol, eye its oil pressure ive got, there all wired in electrical now just need to figure ou how to connect it up, this is something ive never done and im struggling to find a guide. do any of you guys know where the oil pump is located so i can check the connection. ive just had a remap so wanted the gauges in so i new what everything was running and that its running safe, ive ever sacrifices my flip out tv for the extra gauges lol.
