I recently switched to high flow intake screens on my 200HO and am now seeing 0 psi at idle. WOT is normal and it's still pissing out the back at idle. Should I be switching back to the standard screens? Thx.

The screens should have no effect at idle speed pressure. is the water pressure a displayed via one of the ICON digital gauges? What is the pressure at speeds above idle?

It's displayed on the square icon gauge. Water pressure at WOT is high 20s +. I can't recall the exact number.

Why the change from the OEM factory water pickups?

Remove and check the nosecone water pickup for any plugging/damage.  They take a beating running shallows and logs/debris

I would suspect a kink in the hose from the block to the pressure sensor. Zero pressure at idle would be a function of zero pressure in the block which is not possible with a closed pressure relief valve.
