Map sensors

Postby IMA355-2 » Sun Aug 04, 2019 9:58 pm

Hey guys
Was having a look through a racewoks catalogue the other day and noticed they have 2 and 3 bar map sensors.
Just wondering what if anyone here has any feedback/ experience with them ?
Gotta be better than Ebay specials right :lol:

I know one person with 2 of these that got thrown in the bin and swapped for ls style they were both bad to the point of rough running and constantly changing engine operation

99.9999997% of these on the market are pure shit.

As Delco said, best to retrofit a genuine LS style one. which I would only buy from GM direct.

If you wanted this style, this would probably be a safe bet. https://www.haltech.com/product/ht-0101 ... ap-sensor/
I have one my sr20 gemini its its good for 18psi. It looks like they dont have 2 bar, but maybe you could use 3 anyway.
But yeah the ls1 sensor option is a good one, and seems to be simpler these days.

Do LS1 map sensors go into boost? I thought the std one would be only 1 bar. If that's the case which one do you buy.

There is 2 bar versions used on the SC'd LS engines. I don't know the part number though.
