Race driving enthusiasts will never stop upgrading their cars. The more gauges on the dashboard, the closer the car becomes a racing machine. The big three vital gauges are the boost gauge, oil pressure gauge, and the air/fuel ratio gauge or AFR. Every turbo car must have these devices. Although other gauges are not necessary, they are still beneficial in some way or another.
Dashboard gauges provide more value than aesthetics since they contain vital data on the condition of the vehicle. Hence, they still do matter a lot. Having more Genesis Coupe gauges on the dashboard will make you feel like a driver in a racing cockpit ready for the Grand Prix. But more importantly, they provide alerts on impending engine issues that you can avoid.
Other Gauges That Also Matter
Oil Temperature Gauge
Most modern cars have an oil temperature gauge that only shows the three levels: cold, normal, and hot. But the information is general and not accurate. For most vehicles, engine oil should be at least 220 degrees Fahrenheit to burn water and deposits. If the engine's sump temperature rarely goes beyond the boiling point of water at 212 degrees, water will begin to mix with sulfur. Thus, creating acids that can damage the bearings.
Installing the gauge can help you more precisely monitor the temperature of the oil. You will appreciate this device when you change engine oil from regular to synthetic. A regular oil can withstand up to 250 degrees but begins to break down beyond 275 degrees. On the other hand, synthetic oil can tolerate higher beyond 300 degrees, while racing oils can operate at 350 degrees. There is no way to get this data using the stock gauge. You can only get the precise level if you are using an aftermarket oil temperature gauge.
Fuel Pressure Gauge
A fuel pressure gauge is a diagnostic tool that lets you monitor your fuel system. It also acts as an early warning on some potential problems with the engine. Thus, allowing you early repair or replacement of defective parts before damaging the engine further. The fuel pressure should stay within the safe range. Otherwise, problems may occur. Low fuel pressure indicates some issues, such as the following:
Weak fuel pump.
Dirty fuel filter.
The fuel line becomes restricted.
Faulty electrical control.
Incorrect tank venting.
The pump inlet strainer may clog.
High pressure can also lead to some problem, such as:
AFR becomes too rich decreasing fuel efficiency.
Black exhaust fumes.
The emissions may increase, leading to damage to the catalytic converter.
Exhaust Gas Temperature Gauge
An internal combustion engine's exhaust gas temperature needs regular monitoring to ensure the level stays in the normal range. Going beyond the range and some parts like the pistons and bearings will start to burn. An EGT gauge can also help prevent fouling of your spark plugs and allows you to adjust the AFR for maximum efficiency.
