Glowshift gauge accuracy test

While at school last month I had the opportunity to do an actual lab test on a couple of gauges I bought. They are the elite 10 colour style.

I purchased the 100psi fuel pressure gauge and the 30 psi Boost gauge.



I tested both gauges with a meriam manometer, which is considered a primary standard in my field of work.



The fp I'll keep short because it tested dead on from 0-100 in increments of 10psi.



The Boost gauge I used increments of 1psi and the gauge was great till 15psi where it actually read 15.1 and then at 20psi it read 20.2. and at 30 it was 30.3



now the boost gauge is a compound gauge and has vacuum measured in inches of mercury and it's range is 0-30inHg



I measured this in increments of 5inHg and

at -5inHg it measured -5.2

at -10 it was -11

at -15 it was -12

and at -20 it was -23

I didn't go full scale vacuum as I was pressed for time (had my finals to write)besides I had seen enough.



Anyway a good test for you guys.

Now these gauges aren't made with highest quality manufacturing processes.

But I've had their electric N20 gauge for over a year already and it's still fine. And thats why I bought them again.

Now I also received a coupon code in one of the gauge boxes

"Save10June" good for 10%off till june 15th

No I don't have any affiliation with this company

and truth be told I would have bought a different brand if I had the money when I installed the N20

But they had a cheap electric pressure gauge that matched my gauge colours.

It works great so I bought a couple more.

Has your Stang been eating the Fuel pressure sending units? I am on my 4th one. Glowshift admitted there is a problem with our non return fuel system and their sending unit.

Sorry about the delay, ( too much work) I called them and they sold me a " Scrubber" 19$ and a free sending unit. Scrubber is supposed to obsorb the fuel pressure spikes from the non return style fuel system. The Sending unit usually lasted about ten days, since the scrubber install ( its been three weeks) still working. its just a small fitting with a diaphram in it. So far it works though.
