VDO 150psi Oil Pressure Sending Unit, 10 X 1mm, Dual Pole (7psi Switch)

VDO 150psi Oil Pressure Sending Unit, 10 X 1mm, Dual Pole (7psi Switch)


 
We don't feel that the VDO 150psi Oil Pressure, 10 X 1mm, Dual Pole Sending Unit is the "right" sender to use for aircooled VW Engines because the oil light comes on at too high a pressure. Stock is 2psi, this comes on at 7-8psi. In addition, the proper Oil Pressure "Window" is from 0-50psi. Having to use 1/3 of a gauge on a 150psi gauge makes no sense. Can you tell the difference between 10 and 15psi on a 150psi gauge?

Aircooled VW Engines usually have a hot idle anywhere from 1.5-7psi when properly built (Proper sized pump), and using the correct viscosity oil (10psi/1k RPM hot cruise). More pressure than this at cruise causes the stock oil cooler to be bypassed, and oil temps skyrocket. When you size the pump and oil viscosity properly, you should see hot idle between 1.5-7psi.

If you use a VDO 2-Pole Sending Unit, the idiot light is triggered at 8psi, and you will be constantly freaking out at hot idle wondering "what's wrong".

The solution is to use a VDO 1-Pole Sender with the STOCK Oil Light Switch, to get the use of your Oil Pressure Gauge, with the correct operation of the stock oil pressure switch activating your Warning Light.

Regardless, we are offering this for you enthusiasts that want a high warning light pressure instead of the 2psi stocker.
