    I can tell you that at 80MPH on my RXP i got 65PSI at the thru hull fitting and never saw much pressure until my speed was over 65MPH then it really started to climb fast.I had vacuum when i took off aswell. This was in salt water but not sure if makes a difference from fresh . I used a liquid filled gauge i had in my workshop but any presure gauge will work.Hope this helps!!!

    I actually prefer the "el-cheapo" mechanical needle gauge for a good reason. Once the tunnel pressure starts getting close to overloading, you'll see the needle start fluctuating. You won't see this on a digital gauge.

    Out of curiosity where are you tapping the pressure feed for the pump tunnel sensor?

    Straight pressure gauges do not like vacuum so i would go with the compound gauge.
