Sensors & boost control


Recommended Posts

Hi all 

I am eventually looking into getting like a link dash and I want as much standard info feed into that as possible, as well as ditching my blitz 4 stage boost controller and let the ecu take care of it :)

Can I please have some recommendations on what to get.

- my AEM gauge 02 sensor has packed it so I would like that info passed through the ecu, I guess it should already be getting AIT and Oil pressure, I know it isn't getting boost as that is displayed on a gauge and controlled via controller (only during tuning)

My car is a R32GTR
ECU = Link G4+

thanks for your time

The ECU has a MAP sensor on board so boost is already taken care of.  IAT is already there.  Oil pressure in a GTR is not connected to the ECU, it is just a standalone gauge in the dash.  

So my suggestions below are not really super important items to have displayed on the dash but they are good to have connected to the ecu so you can set up some safeties and/or log them (of course they are available to display on the dash too):

Oil pressure.

Fuel Pressure.

Lambda. 

If its doing track work you may want to consider oil temp also.

For boost control you will need a 3 port mac valve.  

Any Link dealer can supply all of this or there are various 3rd party options.  For the Lambda I would highly recommend a CAN bus type controller.  For the pressure sensors make sure they are a decent reputable brand.
