For those with water pressure gauges

I'm contemplating fitting a water pressure gauge as I've been having some probable overheat issues. What sort of pressure do the engines normally run at? The Suzuki brochure shows both 15 and 30 psi versions. Which one would i need on a DF90??

Cheers

I can answer this one myself now. I fitted a 30psi gauge and at full chat, it just touches the 15psi mark.

Bear in mind that overheating might just not be as simple as pressure, flow rates are also an important factor
