I’ve been reading about the manifold plumbing. What route did you take? Im thinking of just using some barb fittings with the silicon tubing running over the the spare spot on the sensor manifold block.

I did the manifold pressure plumbing this morning using the kit from Aircraft Specialty, they have it all figured out, no guessing. They send everything needed, even the small stuff, highly recommended.

I'll take some pics when it's done ... getting close! (I spend a lot of time getting wire routing the way I like it)

I had a noise issue with my install. The Tach was reading way high. I put the diode in at AFS recommendation (12 v system), this helped. Ultimate cause: I use a shielded wire for the tach signal. I grounded the shield at each end. bad no-no. Cut the ground on the engine side and all was well.

They made up the manifold fittings/hoses for me as well. works great.
For timing, I pull off the two black hoses and plug into a autozone tee with hose to time both mags at once.

Wondering if anyone has integrated pmag information into their Dynon Skyview system. If so, any PIREPS?

I've been running PMags for almost 3 years using black silicone tubing and nylon fittings (from McMaster-Carr) for the plumbing, so I'd be curious to see how your setup looks.

No pic at this time. Hangar is a 20 minutes away.
basically, braided hose with a straight piece in the middle with two connections for the two black hoses from the pmags.
one end of the braided hose goes to the #3 cylinder, the other goes to a firewall fitting for the manifold transducer which is on the cockpit side of the firewall.
Pretty simple installation, no idea what I paid for it.
