Have 40' diesel pusher motor home. Already have Cobalt boost gauge, wanted to match it w/Cobalt pyro, but it's a 41' wire run from exhaust manifold to dash location. Do you have a pyro that will work accurately over that distance?

Asked by: 96-DP-Cummins
Thank you so much for contacting us. We have a pyrometer extension module we make that is compatible with our incandescent lit pyrometers: This will allow runs of up to 75 feet with no loss in accuracy. Unfortunately the Cobalt line is LED lit, and not compatible. Check out the Ultra Lite, Sport Comp, Phantom, Z Series or Carbon Fiber lines for gauges that will work. Hope this helps!

How long is the probe on this gauge?

Asked by: Tylor
Hi Tylor, thank you for connecting with us. The probe wire length from gauge to probe is 10 feet. The probe itself, right at the bend is just under 3 inches. The probe we include is model 5251, which you can see here:
