Fuel Pressure Sensor recommendations

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for fuel pressure sensor recommendations.   I'm using a Wendon A2040 pressure regulator (up to 120 PSI) and it has a 1/8th inch -27npt female port on it for a pressure sensor.     I'm looking for a recommendation based on accuracy and reliability in regards to failure rates (leaks) but also something that is relatively easy to source.   Obviously I'd like it to also be compatible with the Link ECU's.  It's a N/A motor. Also needs to be compatible with E85 & normal pump gas.

Let the recommendations loose~!

have a look on mouser or digikey for honeywell PX2 or PX3 sensors. They come in various fittings including 1/8-27npt and pressure ranges up to 10bar. One of them is brass body and the other stainless but are otherwise very similar. Try to get the ones with Nitrile o-rings in them. Nitrile handles contact with fuel better. The spec sheet for these tells you which letter of the product code identifies the o-ring type. 

Dont buy the chinese copies of these from aliexpress/ebay/etc. Even if they are accurate on day 1, they very quickly (a few weeks) become bascially random number generators. The genuine ones are reliable howver, and provide good data sheets that are easy to set up in the link calibrations

I am using an AEM brass body pressure sensor. It is the STD Bosch calibration. I have one on my regulator and one in the injector rail.

I looked at this one but it has a limitation of 50 PSI.    I'm not planning on running much higher, but I don't want to run on the edge of a sensor's capabilities.   I looked at this one that is rated at 100 PSI:

That's a solid sensor. There are 15-20 cars local to me running the same one.

Thanks~!  I got it ordered and also got to use my summit racing $50 customer appreciation certificate.
