you mean regular old oil pressure and water temp gauges or are you talking about egt and boost gauges?
Here is some reading material for you, PLEASE READ IT AND UNDERSTAND IT!!
Things to consider about owning a 6.0L
Check your ECT/EOT delta. Check your fuel psi. Check your FICM volts. If any of these are out of tolerance, fix them before they run into more expensive repairs.
Most members go with either a Edge INSIGHT CS/CTS for monitoring a butt load of parameters and if you go with the expandable cable accessories you will be able to monitor fuel psi and EGT. The other is a scangaugeII, then you will need to buy a separate EGT and fuel psi gauge.
If you prefer analog gauges and are gonna tune and/tow with your truck, then I would suggest ECT,EOT,Fuel psi, EGT, TFT, and Boost to start with.
IMO, your better off with the Edge Insight CS/CTS or ScangaugeII set-ups. You'll be able to monitor more and read/clear codes.
After you have your monitor solution, spend your money on fixing any issues and updating and OEM upgraded parts. Then your ready for the "fun" stuff.
For tuner, SCT with custom tunes is what works best for the 6.0. Stay far away from any tuner that has "shift on the fly" programming, may cause premature damage to your trans.
Most members go with the X-3 SCT with custom tunes and the Edge Insight CS/CTS as a monitor.
SCT does make a tuner/monitor combo, like the Livewire #9600 and TSX #8900. Do a search, you can find their "pro's/Con's" in order to make a decision.
