Default YAAAARR!11 Possible cheap Hobbs switch type thingy!

Digikey part number 384-1012-ND is what I just ordered, adjustable pressure switch 1-4 psig, $14. There are a variety of different pressures and ranges available - easily found searching digikey for "pressure switch."

They come in 120/240 VAC and 30 VDC flavors - I'm not sure if those are requirements or capabilities SO DON'T RUN OFF AND BUY ONE JUST YET. Joey will let you know how his works.

So what are you planning to control with this thing? Wastegate soleniod? VTEC activation by boost pressure instead of RPM?

Older (mid-'80's) GM low side AC cutout switches are preset to 30psi, adjustable up (useless) or down to, ---- I guess 0psi. New they're cheap, from the junkyard they're free.

Also used to control water/methenol injection for forced induction vehicles.

There are a whole bunch of purge solenoids and other useless crap on a Honduh that can be used for the same thing. This is not a pressure switch.
