Electronic gauges w/EGT - No tuning

Since my '04 6.0 (Truck build - 08/03, turned over 79,000 today) still has the EGR cooler and does NOT have ARP studs installed, you might say I'm a little paranoid. I would like to monitor my actual EOT and ECT, and I know the Scangauge II will do that. But I would also like to monitor EGT for cooling off purposes, and I don't know if the SGII can. The Edge Evolution will, but for much higher cost. I'm NOT interested in running an alternate tune at this point. Low cost is better as long as functionality is present.

So I'm looking for suggestions. I don't really want to do separate analog gauges for these functions (might want to monitor boost, also), and the compactness of the electronic modules really appeals to me.

Thanks!

Insight. That's the one I was thinking of, but I'm not very familiar with these gadgets. I like the look and interface a lot. I guess I was wondering if it's possible to do the same thing for less than $390 (Edge Insight + Probe).

Thanks for the input.

Not really...after doing alot of research and internet browsing....the Insight was the best bang for the buck that I could find.
