    Default Map Sensor

    Im looking a little more into a map sensor for my swap. Right the two options im concidering are the HKS (Denso) boost pressure sensor (i believe its the elusive 3 bar sensor) or a MR2 sensor and BCC. The HKS unit is 125 and i can get the mr2 and bcc for 90. any suggestions.

    Both prices are pretty good. I personally would probably go with the HKS, but that is because i dont know much about using the mr2 sensor.

    the mr2 sensor doesnt read as much boost as the 1jz's but the boost cut controller would take car of that. On the other hand the hks sensor will read 2.5 bars of pressure but im not sure if the 1jz ecu can compensate for that high of PSI resulting in fuel cut from the ecu being able to read stock limits only and having to get a BCC any way. I want to go the HKS route but if I have to get a BCC id go with the MR2. Oh the MR2 sensor has been confirmed to work by pheonix tuning. The work close with Dr. Tweak and got my wiring harness extended for me. I believe the pheonix tuning owner is run by MR2 Guru (he really knows his ish), dont quote me on that though.

    Hey, thanks for the plug. Actually the MR2 Guru guy has a business called Phoenix Motorsports and his name is Josh. My business is Phoenix Tuning and, unfortunately, my name is also Josh, so it gets a little confusing sometimes. Add to the fact that I do wiring work for Josh at Phoenix MOTORSPORTS and it gets really out of hand...

    Yes, the HKS MAP sensor IS the elusive Denso 3bar sensor. Denso part 949940-6420 if you were curious. If you can get them for $125, I would highly suggest doing that, provided you have some way to scale fuel back 30% or so. This is also the same sensor as the APEXi 3bar.

    They're both Denso sensors

    It's a 3bar sensor, so wouldn't it read 2bar of pressure


    You wouldn't happen to have the part number for that MR2 sensor would you?

    I have an afpr so that should help with the scaling, im glad someone has confirmed the HKS unit.

    As for the MR2 sensor I don't have the part number but call Pheonix Motorsports:http://www.phoenixmotorsportsonline.com/

    They may have some sensors around the shop.

    Actually, Rob the sensors are different from what I've seen.. BOTH are indeed 3Bar, however different part numbers.
