1. YES EGT! When I bought mine it had 33K and a smoked turbo, most likely from the last owner not having an EGT gauge and shutting it off like a gasser. I have 60K plus on the replacement, shut it down religously below 400*.

2. The CS/CTS are nice, but the plug ins add up. I have an Auto Meter EGT and fuel psi and a Scan Gauge II. At $150, the Scan Gauge is a pretty good deal.

Not bad at all. The EGT EAS kit comes with add on availability. You have to buy the universal sensor kit and the fuel pressure kit (plus the fuel bowl adapter too) to be able to monitor the fuel pressure. Everything plugs in easily then. I think it took me a whole 30 minutes to do mine.
