Suggestions for cheap digital manometer?

  1. Oct 27, 2011 #1
    I want to look at some pressures in an automotive intake system, measure the loss at various points and flow rates. Plan is to use a long section of silicone thin tubing and poke it in at various access points before and after the air filter as well as post the throttle and down as close as I feel safe to a valve. This is a hobby and I am cheap, plus while absolute accuracy isn't essential, I need a few digits with decent relative accuracy (difference between reading at various points or times fairly accurate).

    Anybody have experience with the cheap ($45 shipped) ebay meters from China, they seem to sell a lot with good feedback. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=120658272340 [Broken]
