OOOOOOHHHHHH, that would be awesome! If an Edge can tell you boost on an Attitude monitor, then there has got to be a wire to tap in to help out with this. That is probably the only contribution I can make to this.Anyone remember the old 80-81 turbo trans ams with the LED boost lights in the hood? (See attached) I was thinking it would be cool to do the same for my LLY. I was looking at a cowl hood like a Reflexxion and need some thoughts on how I could go about this. Thanks, G

Yeah, I'm hoping one DP's finest will have some ideas. Some eye candy for the guy next to you at the stoplights.. just before you blow his doors off...OOOOOOHHHHHH, that would be awesome!

I was thinking of filling up the rise in the cowl itself. My cousin had one of the LED trans ams and if I remember correctly the lights were all yellow. Not bad for 25 years ago.I didn't know it was just 3 lites. I would want it to be more like 10-15 if possible...kind of like KITT. Each lite could represent 2-3 lbs of pressure.
Thanks for providing the data sheet on this. I'll tinker with it and see what I can come up with. GUpon looking into it a little more, here's what I found...
Motorola makes a 0-36.3PSI pressure sensor with a 0.2v-4.9v output. Basically, you give it boost and it gives you voltage relative. Part number is MPX4250; datasheet is attached.
All you'd need then is an output converter to go from volts input to scalable outputs; that is, depending on input voltage (from motorola sensor), how many and which outputs to power- input 0.2-0.4v=output 1, input0.5-0.7v output= 1+2, input0.8-1.0v=1+2+3output, etc. This should be doable within one IC, but I don't know of one offhand.
That would be pretty easy. Use a super diesel pressure mainifold, with 3 adjustable hobs switches.schulte's idea would be nice and neat. you could setup a couple adj hobbs switches one to each light
