Those who run a pump, do you also run a gauge?

I run a gauge also but don’t look at it on the track very often.

I run a gauge with a check valve to see max vacuum on the run.

I run a gauge and usually just watch it to see if there is any change at idle or part throttle just for peace of mind. On track I have a data recorder.

It's a good idea to run on so you know if you've developed a leak or possible engine problem. If you usually have 6" Hg at idle, and you notice that it only has 3",or 0" when you are in the lanes, it's time to dial it up a couple.

I have the MSD boost retard controller plugged into my Grid. It logs pressure from -14psi to +40psi (I think that's the high end of the range). I don't use the retard control, just zero it out, and it's plumbed into the bottom of my intake. Logs crankcase vacuum along with ignition data every run....works pretty good once I figured it out....

-14psi = -28.5inhg.....so I'm covered.

Last year at the Mile High Nationals I talked to the tech rep for MSD. That was his suggestion. No MSD trailer this year.....

back of the head, right above the coil. Both heads are tapped for 1/8" NPT, driver's side head has a plug in it.

Ok, I was thinking that might be an oil return line but I can see it's a little too high for that...
