Since I will be wanting to run higher boost
when I get my new setup will this map sensor work? I did read on prl blog in order to make most of the p600 you would need 4bar map sensors but didn’t specify exactly besides mentioning Hondata so my question is will these work?

Should work. Just a 4bar from different model. Common part swap in VW /Audi's when doing turbo upgrades. Basically let's the ecu read the extra pressure in the manifold. Any 4bar from Honda should work. Just google the sensors for the cars they listed in the link that the sensors come on stock. may be able to find it cheaper.

Thanks for the help before I posted this thread I did message Bri Stewart from PRL and he said that it would work but I only need one of the 4bar map sensor. My question now is why do I need 1 if there’s 2 of the same map sensor that come factory wouldn’t I need to replace both ?

That I'm not sure of never heard of one having two MAP sensors. Usually if it's forced induction, the engine will have a MAP and a MAF sensor. If the MAP fails it will use the MAF sensor as a backup. Maybe they used two MAP sensors and one as a backup in this case. Non turbo/sc Engines usually just make due with MAF only.

Both are the same part number just in different locations

Ok gotcha. So you will probably be replacing the one on the ic system. It's usually the one that is monitoring boost pressure. The one on the manifold is usually just for monitoring normal air pressure as a reference for the other sensor. You want to change the ic one because that should be the one limiting boost pressure from entering the intake system.

Will require install at the same time as turbo, and absolutely requires a new starter file spec’d to the new sensors. Without the new base tune the car will fumble and not want to turnover. I just upgraded my turbo to the EFR-7163, and replaced both map sensors with skunk2 4bars... No error codes or anything 👍🏾
