Default cyberdyne boost guage and map sensor question

i recently purchased a cyberdyne electric boost guage for my turbo-d. it came with a map sensor to send the signal to the guage, can this map sensor be used for higher boost reading for the ECU as well?
in other words can i wire this map sensor up just like the gm or motorola map sensors?

as long it uses a 0 to 5v signal i dont see why not, but you would need to know the pressure to voltage conversion which i'm sure you wont find.

it does use a 5v signal, so that is on my side, i may be able to contact them for the pressure to voltage conversion. what does it need to be to work with say, a crome tuned ecu?

i wouldnt do it. those cyberdyne gauges are about the lowest quality stuff i have ever seen. and the electronic boost gauges are very very very unresponsive. who knows if its the sensor or the gauge, but they are VERY far off from the actual boost readings. peak numbers were pretty close, but the delay of the gauge was horrible.


just buy a 3 bar map sensor they are like 100 bucks. if you cant swing 100 bucks for the most important sensor on your car than you should not have a turbo car. no offense but thats just kind of the way it is. everybody is about saving money but thats one thing not to skimp on.

Plus you might have problems with the sensor signal being split to 2 different sources. You might get a lower reading than what it actually is since the signal wire is split maybe?

not trying to skimp on anything was just curious if it would work. not real worried about how responsive the guage is, peak boost is all im really worried about it, and it had the user settable hi boost warning, which was a plus for me.
but thanks for the info man
