Ben, we've got to know more about your setup and what you're trying to do. First, I've never heard of this company - not necessarily a bad thing, but they probably aren't a huge player. Second, looking at their website, their MAP sensors are only $35 where the rest of the industry has them closer to $100 - this is a red flag for likely being a cheap Chinese knockoff. You could try it and it could work, or it may not work, or it may only work for a couple of months, then you're going to have to buy another one. There are worse scenarios too if the sensor doesn't just completely die and instead gives false readings which could lean the engine out and tear up all kinds of stuff. Why not just go with a reputable company? Also, these are 3 and 4 bar sensors, which will not work with the stock ECU - are you running an aftermarket ECU which can support an aftermarket MAP sensor? If not, stick with an OEM Denso sensor.

Thanks for the feed back brother yeah i got chipped ecu fully tuned already. I was thinking the same since it's so cheap. Dont wanna risk losing a motor over a sensor. I have a fully built gsr for turbo cp piston eagle rod css block an full Brian crower head stage 2 cams on a gt35r turbo b16 tranny in a em1

Sensor needs to be the same bar range as what you have now or you will have to re-tune.
