The speedo sender for a Td5 and 300Tdi is part# YBE100530. Is it possible that I already have this sender installed on my 300tdi converted NAS?

Does the laser tach set up have to be rover specific or is it a generic item?

No, any old non contact tach. You can the measure the speed of any shaft. Just makes it easy to adjust the VDO tach. They cost $30 or so.

If you already have an electronic speedo, you can use the current sender. The VDO will use any sender.

I don't have an electronic speedo so I will need to upgrade. I think I have the wrong part number. That part# is for a LT230 transmission. Not sure what the part number is for a R380. In addition to the transducer I also need the wires right?

Does VDO make laser tach senders?

Has someone done the temp swap on a 4.0? I ordered the 323-417 (M16) and she doesnt fit. I am guessing it is the M14 (323-416). Can someone confirm?

I have 417 if someone ordered the 416 and needs to to swap.

I'm considering adding a mud pod for 3 extra gauges, one of them being outside temperature. In addition to the stock gauges, what other gauges do you consider important? I have a 300tdi so, turbo boost? Oil temp EGT? Which ones should I get first?

going through this now...ordered the mini pod- outdoor temp, oil pressure and bat volts are the three I got.

I originally was going to use the stereo insert for the gauges as shown on page two of this thread but my plastics have faded so much that the insert color and my vent trim faded color is not even close and looks a bit funny...so, I'm giving the mini pop a try.

Is the oil pressure gauge different from the oil temp page? Which one is more important? I ordered a oil temp but debating whether to keep it. Need an expert opinion.

Will the battery gauge work with a dual battery system?

What oil pressure sender is needed for a 300tdi? Can't find it in the thread(s).

For Oil Pressure Gauge I went with 350-104 and this sender: 360-009. I hope they fit my 300tdi.

Is it possible to hook up the Oil pressure warning light to the stock dash warning indicator?

For the VDO speedo I am planning to order the YBE100540 Def/Disco Transducer. Can anyone confirm that this works with the 300tdi?

Yes, you can hook the idiot light to one of the studs and the lead for your gauge to the other...this is what I did with my 3.9. The only item to note is that on the 3.9 I had to get an adaptor for the threads which I picked up from my local Parker Hydraulics supplier. I suspect you may need to do the same on the TDI but I do not know.

The single most important gauge for a tdi in my opinion is an egt/pyrometer.

Only true if you have cranked up the fueling..

School me on EGT. Why is it important and what benefit do you get from monitoring it with a gauge?

If it goes too high, you damage the engine. It won't go too high if everything is stock.

I don't think I will have that problem. Mine is stock with the exception of an Allard Intercooler. I recently upgraded the stock exhaust to a 2 1/2" Magnaflow which should help cool the engine as well, right? At least it is better for the turbo.

My VDO upgrade consisted of replacing the stock gauges: Speedo, Fuel, Tach and Coolant Temp. I also got 3 more gauges to fit into a MUD UK Mini Pod: Outside Temp, Volt and Oil Pressure. The only one I wasn't sure of was the Oil Pressure. I needed one more gauge to complete the Mini Pod and I wasn't sure which additional gauges would be important which is why I posed the question here.

What is the benefit of monitoring the oil pressure? What would be considered abnormal and why?

What is the point of a larger intercooler if you do not increase the fueling?

Not sure. I didn't install it. It came with the truck. I'm looking for fuel economy not a smoke machine with 2 extra horse powers.

Perhaps the PO increased the fueling. Believe it or not, more power can be had without any change in mileage....

Which is virtually impossible to determine without a pyrometer. The newest of these engines is now 5 years old and most have been "touched" by someone.
