What a hassel this install turn out to be but the end results are to my liking all except for the colour, they don't quite match with the OEM gauges. I have a total of five Defi sensor for boost, fuel & oil pressure, wter & oil temp and car speed connected to the Link display. It was close 40c here in Melbourne today and my oil temp maxed out at 110c but averaged out at 104c which is below the max for Mobil 1, the peak reading are a great feature as I have found my max speed on the way to work this morning reach 140kph and I though I had'nt gone over 110kph just go to show you can't allways be watching your speedo.

Here's some snaps.

Nice set up David.

Is the Link display removable?

You must have the nicest Z in Aus mate. I'm just trying to imagine an up close and personal view of your blinding blue Nismo bodykited Z and wheel package / followed by the feel on the hips, legs back and shoulders while dropping my bum into your aftermarket seat, looking at all the gauges and finally, the rapturouse noises of the TT engine as I mash the throttle - I only wish I could assualt my senses in this manner on a daily basis!!!

Screw it - I'm taking my Z for a spin now!

Thanks all, glad you like the setup the only thing missing is the trip computer with it's funtions and the volt meter so I will look to fix this at lease for the trip computer.

KY350

The Link Display is removable, it's only attached with doublesided tape so I can relocate it (it's very very light), the setup is fully reverseable back to stock including the TT if I ever sell the car.

Cheers

Ztrack,

how did you end up attaching the fuel pressure sensor.. i'm about to use the aam fuel block and curious to see your setup just in case i need a second option.. also have you tried reviewing the differential fuel pressure under boost conditions wondering how stable it is..

ether,

I used the AAM fuel block adaptor which was a 15min job to install and the Defi sensor screwed straight into the adaptor no probs.
The differential pressure is a real neat feature for fuel and boost pressures and showed the APS setup to be spot on (differential pressure stay constant throught the boost range), I generally run with it off, I like to see the rise and fall of the fuel pressure but it's really easly to turn it back on.

Cheers :cheers:

great to hear that.. need to get some o-rings from the dealer and i'll be able to drop the fuel block in place.. had been wondering if the design would have impacted the fuel system..

fantastic to hear about the diff fuel pressure staying stable with the aps kit.. that was the only item i had been pondering to change on the kit.. won't be needing an at the rails return system .. going to be keeping my setup at out of box boost levels.. goes to show that additional complexity is only neccesary for really high hp system

thanks for the input

Sure did, both the oil pressure and temp into to sandwitch plate, GReddy has them available already to go.

Cheers :cheers:

good job Dave!

It looks even better in the dark!!! I really like how it initialises itself when you turn the key!!! Keep the good jobs coming mate!

cheers,

I'm looking at monitoring boost, fuel temp/pressure, water temp and oil pressure but would like to do it without all the gauges. Is it possible to wire it so all the readings go to the Link display and bypass all the gauges?

From the wiring diagrams on the Defi web site, it does look like the gauge faces themselves are independent of the sensors. They just go into the control box which manages the data.

The question is if you can buy the sensors without the gauges themselves.


Alternatively, you could just put a HKS CAMP setup.

I think its a BYO display setup, so you could either put a cheap monitor into the cubbyhole or get a motorised head unit.
