I guess what I really should have said was I wanted to get water proof gauges I just associate marine gauges with water proof.

One thing is certain if the guages are exposed they will fog or get condensation to some degree over time I don't care what brand.

I put mine inside of a Nema enclosure type console and have a tight rubber grommet around the wire entry. Never have a issue with condensation. Key is keeping moisture out and best way is to keep a good seal on top of gauges

FYI

Vehicle Can uses J2284. We don't have any protocols that can change that data besides the Can2Can adapter as your mentioned. We're primarily J1939 and Nmea2k oriented. I will get back to you if I find any additional information.

Got a question for you ecotec guys I plug in my automotive scanner it would not recognize the ltg engine wanted to know what type of car it was. From what I know it was a new crate engine. I never messed with the scanner to much so I am not real familiar with it.
