What does ECT and EOT mean in regards to guages and your EGR?

I was looking into getting some guages when I purchase my SCT/X3 with tunes and had another thread going about the functions of using a pillar type or over the mirror. In that thread someone mentioned that ECT and EOT gauges would be great to have as they are related to your EGR. What are do they mean and what are they measuring and what is a good peramiter to keep an eye on with the gauge?

thats Engine coolant temp and Engine oil temp...

honestly the best bang for your buck to monitor everything you need is going to be the new edge insight like this: Edge Inisight CS

with that you will have the ability to read everything you need...

Then only down side to doing the EDGE from what I read,well at least for me in SoCal, would be the visual test for our new WONDERFUl smog. Since most smog guys may not know a lot about diesels, and I say MAY lol. I dont want them to think the EDGE is being used as a programmer and give them fuel or any reason to dig deaper. Same goes for any dealership I may have to take it to. In saying that. If I did NOT go with the EDGE, what are some decent gauges to use and where would good spots to put the sensonrs for both those type gauges?

Would a Water temp guage be same as COOLANT temp gauge? I am just making sure as I am looking for the gauges and that is how they have them listed. OIL temp gauge and WATER temp.

yes you would use water temp for coolant temp.... but let me add this...most edge products are CA legal.... plus its also pretty easy to unplug since it only goes to your OBD 2 port just in case.....

Glowshift are good entry level gauges....

If you need some more info let me know bud... ill be glad to help you choose the right product..

well i would say their as good as the lower end Autometer gauges.... i have the GS gauges in my Excursion right now and they seem pretty good.... i can get you a package deal price on some GS gauges if you want...

how far south are you? i could recommend some good ford dealerships that are mod friendly...

I was looking at the GS site and they have a 3 pillar cluster combo for about $210 but I may want a 4 pillar set up, not sure. I live in Oceanside, which is about 40 minutes north of San Diego air port.
