Default Red Cube differences

Aircraft Spruce lists two part numbers for the FT60 Red Cube transducers. Part # 10-01165 and part # 10-01196.

Per their Q&A:

Q: What is the difference in PN 10-01165 Dynon EMS fuel flow sensor and PN 10-01196 EI FT-60?
A: Part number 10-01165 and Part number 10-01196 are exactly the same part. Dynon uses the EI FT 60 for their systems.

So there's a $35.00 difference in price- but they say it's the same part. What gives? This is for my Garmin G3X Touch system.

The fuel flow transducers are different colors depending if it is a gravity feed system or not, and/or a carbureted or fuel injected system. Give the manufacture a shout and make sure you install the correct transducer for the application. ALSO.... there was had a fatal accident near here a couple of years ago, the builder used Teflon tape and RTV in the fuel fittings, which caused a partial blockage of the outflow port on the transducer.
Follow published techniques and practices.

We only manufacture three versions of our flow transducers. The FT-60 (red cube), good for engines up to 350 horsepower and utilizing a fuel pump. The FT-90 (gold cube), good for engines from 350-550 horsepower, or ANY gravity fed application, regardless of horsepower. Lastly, the FT-180 (black cube), for use with engines over 550 horsepower.

Dave,

While we have your ear, have the dependability of the red cubes been improved? They seem to have a bad rap out there. I made it 450hrs before mine started intermittently giving zero readings and back to normal several times a flight. What are the usual failure modes and why?

Question, I will have a 195hp O-360 that will be gravity fed, the above says the red is for a fuel pump. Which fuel flow should I use?
