    Question Noob Needs Help - 2010 Shelby GT500 Pillar Gauges Setting.

    Always wanted one, so found what I thought was a decent car at a decent price.

    2010 GT500 - one owner. Spotless.
    Navigation System
    Shaker audio w/1 CD instead of the 6 it was advertised as having - not happy about that . . .
    Prior owner swapped out the tail light with an alternate set, but left the original ones in the trunk.
    Brembo brake system
    Kona Blue
    14,000 miles
    Not the original tires which I didn't like until I saw the original owner put 20" Foose wheels all around and tires that were rated as high as the originals - 168 MPH. The Foose are $320 a piece and the tires are $300 a pop - NITTO INVO Ultra-High Performance Tires
    $36,000

    The rub is the gauges styled like this:

    I want them to read what they are while I drive. By odd trying the oil one reads right. The others water temp and boost I played with endlessly with no luck. I'm confident they work. Each gauge has 2 rubber covered buttons. One on the left (Marked "W") pegs the gauge, turns red when pushed as it maxes out. The button on the right (marked "P") used to read, then return to 0. I looked at the manual, on line with no luck. I has to be to sequence of some sort.

    All I want is for the gauges to read properly when I drive the car.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Perhaps if you actually wrote exactly what the issue is with your gauges in detail, which gauges you actually had, which sending units you tapped in to, and any other important details you would get a response........Then again

    Re: Noob Needs Help - 2010 Shelby GT500 Pillar Gauges Setting.

    Fair enough. The gauges are AutoMeter Elite Series. I contacted the manufacturer and now have the instruction on setting the gauges, color displayed and what not . . . so can anyone advise me on the settings a far as WARNING on the Boost Gauge, Oil Pressure Gauge and Water Temp Gauge.

    Boost I'm guessing is for the turbo charger. Factory dash psi goes to 15.
    Oil Pressure is 80 psi at startup, gauge only goes to 100
    Water Temp - what should I set the red/warning temp at? I think it normally runs about 190 F.

    Thank in advance for any information you can offer.

    Supercharger, what pulley do you have on it?

    Oil pressure, 90psi

    Water temp, 190 is about normal, 210 would be the warning light if it was my car
