VDO turbo boost sender

Any ideas where I can get a VDO 0-2 bar turbo boost sender for my Mermaid engine? Also need a new adapter plug to screw it into the manifold.

Would it be the same one as on the 7.5 tonne truck the mermaid originally came from? An Iveco/Ford truck dealer would be a possible solution and probably cheaper than a marine dealer.
Need spares,consoles,consumables,hire,training or even a new boat?

these 4 cyl engines were never made from ford with a turbo. the company that supplies parts for these engines who are the main distributors are DALTON POWER in the midlands. However a VDO agent will be cheaper. approx 37 last time I looked!
