VDO 80psi Oil Pressure Gauge, Royale, White Face with Chrome Bezel, 2 1/16"

VDO 80psi Oil Pressure Gauge, Royale, White Face with Chrome Bezel, 2 1/16"


 
VDO 80psi Oil Pressure Gauge, Royale, White Face with Chrome Bezel, 2 1/16" is used to monitor the ultra-critical oil pressure on VW beetles, ghias, and busses. We recommend 10psi/1k RPM as the benchmark, without exceeding 45psi hot pressure (which causes overheating).

Due to the design of the VW Bug and Type 4 engine, oil pressures in excess of 45psi cause the oil to BYPASS THE STOCK OIL COOLER. VW Assumed that "Thick oil is cold oil", and set it up this way on purpose. So when you put in a monster oil pump, and also use something ridiculous like 20-50 oil, and have 50-60psi oil pressure at cruise, while that SEEMS like a good idea, it's completely unnecessary, and will cause your oil cooler to be "turned off". Oil Temperatures will actually GO DOWN if you get the cruise oil pressure to 35-45psi.
