They actually have 100 psi too in the "Vision" series.. but the senders come
in either 80 or 150 (??). I have a 100 in mine, and I *think* that Marc at
AMS used the 150 sender and said that the VDO product guide said that was
the right one. In any event, you should NOT use the 80, as cold pressure is
about 90 psi.. ND definitely recommends the 150, I've asked...
I'll send you a pic of my nice 3-gauge setup as installed by AMS.
