i keep seeing people say get a good set of gauges. what gauges do i need to install?
My truck has the factory boost and transmission temp. And it also has the pryo gauge. But it was installed before i bought it and its located in the down pipe right after the turbo. is that ok?
Innovative diesel, Gearhead Automotive, and Quict tricks automotive are just a few that you can get custom tunes from, there are also others out there.
The factory trans gauge is JUNK!! by the time it moves, it's too late!!
The factory boost is very accurate. And you EGT probe needs to be relocated to pre-turbo, in the exhaust manifold. Having the probe post turbo, the readings can be off 200*-400*.
You have some choices on monitoring the motor, the analog gauges or a digital monitor. This is a matter of personal preference and the amount of play money you want to spend. The temps you want to monitor are ECT,EOT,fuel psi,EGT,boost, and if you tow, trans temp.
