Been using a testo 325 for several years. I like the way that 320 is set up but don't want to spend $1500 to replace a working 325.

That was introduced about the same time as the 320.

What do you like about it best?

Can use it as a manometer also. So I have my manifold pressure printed out on the slip with my other readings on gas, draft reading on oil.

I still have my tech 60, which reads much faster then the Insight, but doesn't print or do draft.

Is that Insight made here (gonna buy the 320 and a second analyzer for back-up)? Uncle has been a Bacherach man all his career til Testo came on the scene, so I had to choose between the two for my primary CA.


Have you looked at the UEI/Kane analyzer? My God! It does everything in one kit at a low price with all the attachments and probes included. With the 320 you have to buy extra probes separately and they ain't cheap!!!

Don't mind spending the money as Testo build quality/fit and finish are very high..far superior to the UEI/Kane. Just wonder what you thought.

The Insight is made in the USA.

No I haven't checked out the UEI/Kane.

Also, the bacharach lets me put a temp probe in the intake pipe on 2 pipe units so it uses the actual combustion air temp, not room temp.
