Default AEM Serial Gauge

I love the gauge, but not using its full potential. AEM forum is not real helpful and was wondering if there is anyone out there who knows how to set it up properly. I am specifically looking for input on to set up things like oil pressure, boost and additional water temps and air temps. Any help would be appreciated.

its not too hard, you just have to feed the new sensors into spare 5v inputs, then add that to the telemetry output in aem pro/aem tuner.

In the gauge pro software you have to remember that all the gauge sees is the raw voltage. You have to use the info that came with the new sensors to tell the gauge what the range is. ie. for fuel pressure, 0.5v is 0psi, 4.5v is 100psi..

there is really no good how-to anywhere.. you just have to play around with it.

If i had one here I'd make one up, but I dont have one so i'm pretty useless.

Just make sure you save your templates often. Its easy to loose everything.

Appreciate the response. So I cant use the oil pressure sending unit that is already present...the one that fires the idiot light on the dash? If not I can hook one up pretty easily.

No, that's just a switch not an actual pressure sensor.

If you just want to use it for the preloaded readings it is not bad, but when you want to start adding it is not plug and play.
