Turbo Boost Gauge Compatible With 6.9 IDI

Black 7 Color 20 PSI Boost Gauge

The factory 82-86 F-Series IDI did not come equipped with turbo, so adding a turbo kit is a popular upgrade for these OBS Ford trucks. When you install aftermarket turbo, adding a boost gauge goes hand-in-hand. And for the lower boost levels this truck puts out, we have a 20 PSI Boost Gauge that delivers accurate readouts from 0 to 20 PSI. This boost gauge comes with parts needed for installation including 9’ of Boost Hose, 1/8-27 NPT Brass Compression Fittings and Mounting Hardware.

2400F Pyrometer EGT Gauge Fits F-Series IDI

Black 7 Color 2400° F Exhaust Gas Temperature Gauge

The 2400° Fahrenheit Pyrometer EGT Gauge is for anyone driving a 1982-1986 Bullnose Ford F-Series F150, F250 or F350 with a 4.9L, 5.8L V8 or 6.9L Diesel V8 IDI. When you’re pushing for maximum output of your engine, this gauge will ensure that exhaust gas temperatures are not running too hot which could result in damage. Each diesel pyrometer comes with everything required for installation including a 1/8-27 NPT Type K Thermocouple EGT Probe with 3’ of Steel Braided Cable; a 6’ Stainless Steel Braided Sensor Harness and Mounting Hardware.

Trans Temp Gauge Installs To OBS F-Series

Black 7 Color Transmission Temperature Gauge

A Transmission Temperature Gauge is essential for any 1982-1986 Ford F-Series and helps you monitor OBS Ford transmission temperatures from 80° to 260° Fahrenheit. Included you’ll receive an Electronic Transmission Temperature Sensor with 1/8-27 NPT Male Threads, a 2’ Sensor & Power Harness, Mounting Hardware and other installation parts. One of the major factors in reducing the lifespan of a Bullnose F-Series transmission is overheating. Keep an eye on changing temperatures with incredibly accurate readings and avoid any unusual spikes.

Water Temp Gauge Mounts to F-Series 6.9 IDI

Black 7 Color Water Temperature Gauge

Monitor your Ford 6.9 IDI’s coolant temperature up to 300° Fahrenheit with unrivaled accuracy and make sure your diesel engine is at a steady temp to avoid overheating. A high reading could be an indicator of radiator blockage, a broken or malfunctioning fan belt, a shortage of water in the system, or the failure of a water pump or thermostat. This F-Series water temp gauge comes with a 1/8-27 NPT Electronic Water Temperature Sensor that has Bullet-Style Connectors. You’ll also receive a 2’ Sensor & Power Harness and Mounting Hardware.

These gauges come with a 1/8-27 NPT Electronic Oil Pressure Sensor, 9' Sensor Harness and more for installation.
