Got a new sender today. Prior my gauge was reading nothing. Now with the new sender it is pegged to high. I can't remember if pegged high is a short to ground or open circuit. I know it's different for different gauges but can anyone help? If it's a short to ground where the f*** so I start lol

It's probably the sensor itself. Many people have had trouble with aftermarket sending units. Try to find a good oem one or install an afetmarket oil pressure gauge.

I've seen on a few posts the ones that are for non intercooler work for the intercooled? Any truth behind this? The BWD S933 to be exact

I have posted multiple times about after-market oil sensors mostly from SMP...
They are wrong and inaccurate, I bought (2) different ones 1 pegged the meter the other 1 read very low.  Ordered a Mitsu OE 1 from my friend in Yokohama, Japan installed it and all is well...  Stay with Mitsu OE parts for sensors..

Just my $0.02...  ;)
