SCT/Guage upgrades for my Stock '06 F250 CC/LB
Hello, I'm not very experienced with performance upgrades from a technical standpoint so I was wondering if you all could help steer me in the right direction. My truck, other than a 5" MBRP exhaust kit with CAT delete kit, is 100% stock. I do a lot of highway driving, towing boats & quads, ect so I'm going to purchase an SCT X3 (with custom tunes from Eric @ Innovative Diesel cause it sounds like many people on this forum reccomend Eric's tunes). Along with the SCT tuner, I'd like to get a pillar mount with 3 guages. My question is (a) what are some good quality guages to purchase and from what website (b) what 3 components would be most important for me to monitor (such as EGT's, tranny temp, oil pressure, ect)?
And finally, what's a good air intake to increase HP/mpg with low maintenance from a cleaning standpoint? Does an air filter make much difference as far as performance, is it even worth upgrading?
Also, if a different SCT model works better for the 06 6.0 diesels please let me know so I can compare my options. Thanks for your help.
