As mentioned earlier, the engine’s vital signs (oil pressure, water temp, and so on) are monitored by a powerful real-time datalogger that’s built into the new BlackBox v2.0. While the ECU’s data-recording feature is invaluable, having a few traditional gauges installed in your Pony as a backup to the OEM gauges is a good idea, as it allows you to quickly reference exact numeric values and confirm all systems are operating as they should. We’re watching Sleeper’s oil pressure, water temperature, and transmission temperature with Auto Meter’s Pro-Comp Ultra Lite series electric gauges, secretly installed in the LX’s glovebox. (Stevie’s Garage offers this Fox-glovebox gauge mount with or without the gauges of your choice.) Electric gauges are used in the glovebox over standard mechanical gauges to avoid errant readings due to feed lines that might become pinched or broken.
