That's what goes to the rear (instructor/passenger) panel of my M-16 with 912iS:

The second instrument on the rear panel is like this:

2021 Update: Final version of the rear panel instruments,
Kanardia DIGI:

and Kanardia 80mm HORIS Slave:

In between of those two will be space for iPad with Garmin Pilot App, connected via bluetooth to Garmin GDL50 for ADS-B In and weather.

Looks to me like your fuel pressure is off by a factor of 10 or so...
375 is an impressive number on rotor rpm too :)
Fuel Pressure is within the spec for 912iS.
Rotor RPM is what I always see on my M-24/915iS, anywhere from 360 to 410, depend on the weight and the density altitude.
Both values I arbitrary entered as a Test Value into Kanardia's Customizer App just for demo purpose only. It is not an actual instrument readings. :)

EGTs are exactly the same for all cylinders. That cannot be.

This is my panel, yesterday evening. M24/914

I like that setup with the gauges.

All there, easy to see at a glance. Very nice.

From Rotax Operator's Manual, page 2-4
Fuel pressure:
Max. 0.4 bar (5.8 psi)
(0.5 bar for fuel pump from S/N 11.0036)
Min. 0.15 bar (2.2 psi)

You are showing 3.1 bar, which is nearly 45 psi !
That is the Manual for carburated Rotax 912, not for fuel injected Rotax 912iS.
For 912iS normal Fuel pressure [bar] is 2.9 - 3.1, min 2.5, max 3.5.

Ah, I missed that you were fuel injected.
Do you have the same display in the front seat?

No, for front panel I installed Kanardia EMSIS 3.5", this is an actual layout, except instead of Liter and Liters/Hour I set Gal & Gal/Hour units. (and other instruments, of course):

Nice. Is the data collection unit the same for both displays? Dual output?

Yes, engine data broadcasted by Kanardia mini-DAQU unit, making it available to any instrument, connected to the CAN-bus.

Nothing like a bit of diversity.

I like the open ones the best. Which do you prefer to fly? I thought all magni's had the 914 engine, but this one looks like 912?

I have not flown my M-16 yet. Still working on the instruments, prop, etc. AFAIK Magni makes gyros with 912, 912iS, 914 & 915iS. I don't like carburated engines and I don't like the price of 915iS (also I don't think I need a power of 915 on M-16), so I went with 912iS for M-16.
