did you solder the wire directly to the board? that is all i did and mine still works after 2 years. granted, there has been some time when my car wasn't running so it was stored for a couple months with about 1/2 a tank.

What!!!?? Are u saying we just need to solder those 2 wires I gooped up?? And are u saying that will revive all destroyed units as well?

Doing this helps make them last longer, but they still can go bad even with the connections soldered. I really doubt it would fix an already broken one.

yea the car makes around 450 hp... but i only get 14 mpg on a k20z3, the gas sensor is messed up, the boost gauge is messed up, and i have to fill up almost every other day, doesnt make it any better that there are only 2-3 stations around my area with e85. not worth it. anyone want to buy a boosted fg houston area?

^^true..

Here are the 2 senders I sold w goop coating.

If you guys have issues rub pad where sender touches w small screwdriver and scrub off any coating that might be blocking surface areas.

B4 u just install turn ign key w sender unit out and hold on empty for 20 seconds make sure it reads and on full. It reads both then ur good to drop in tank.

Lmk if u guys need help and report the life span if u can?
