EOT,ECT, and EGT

I've read to monitor these and understand why. I've heard people say get a system to monitor them, although I don't know what they're talking about. By what I've read SCT is the way to go but they don't have any monitoring capabilities like the EDGE or some others. Do they? So if you were dead set on an SCT what is the best way to monitor these? The only thing that comes to my mind is a A pillar mount with the gauges. If this is the only way then I'm looking for the best deal/install. If there's other ways please tell me about them.

I'd suggest SCT X3 and then either

A) pillar gauges (or overhead, underdash, whatever), this can get expensive, but I like the look of real gauges (in moderation)

B) a monitor like the edge (there are a few others too)

The Edge Insight with a dash pod works well goes under the hand grab + it is a plug & play and the fuel pressure on the column.

So are you using the edge insight as gauges only and using the SCT for performance? Sorry I'm ignorant about this, this thing stock has always had more than enough power.

Edge Insight (CS or CTS) is a monitor only, no programing. SCT X3 for performance.

The new SCT touchscreen is REALLY nice as well. I have looked at it and am considering replacing my manual gauges with one...

I considered it too. But the $1k price tag kinda turned me away.
