@nightrunner84 can you run your spare under that tank?
I’m using an exhaust back pressure sensor from a 7.3 powerstroke, they go up 40psi and will read vacuum too.
Pulled a bunch out of the wreckers, not all of them were good though, 7.3 ones are 1/8” npt, 6.0l and 6.4l are some flare thing and can read pressures up to 75-80psi. The bottom right is a map sensors for a 6.4L which is an o-ring seal with metric threads and reads up to 75-80psi
I'm going to make a bracket to carry the spare under the rear tank. It'll hang a little low, but the plan is to drag a 5th wheel long distance with my kids. I WILL have a spare.
Sorry it's been a while. I got the permanent circuit built, and it seems to work. Still need to add two more data fields, one for pressure, and one for temp. Here is the board I made from Ifrythings drawing. The trans temp field is missing the powered portion because, as he said, the temp sensor in the trans can be tapped.
Also, I found this bezel on Thingiverse. It'll be going into the overhead console I'm building.
