glowshift sells a 4 gauge pillar with gauges. But then the Livewire will have to be mounted somewhere else. They also sell steering column gauge pods and gauge pods that mount on the lower part of the dash

Livewire PLUS 4 gauges? There isn't a whole lot a Livewire can't pick up. I know that an EGT probe is needed, but that's mucho cheapero than a good gauge.

Auto Meter or nothing for me.

Thanks for the info guys...

Karls-if the livewire will pick up most everything, what if any gauges would u recommend?
The livewire is getting updated tunes put in right now, so I havent used it at all yet.

I think fuel psi is about the only thing I would need to see after adding an EGT probe to a Livewire. A fuel psi gauge will most likely require a metric to SAE adapter. Mine did.

Fuel and oil pressure. The oil pressure gauge on the truck is just a switch that says yeah there's oil pressure. I like a little more info than that.

What about the Autometer Nexus gauges? I was thinking about getting a boost, fuel PSI, oil PSI and EGT set up to go with my CTS.

The Livewire all depends on which model. The original models will require at least two analog gauges to get FP and EGT.


The new Livewire TS has the capability to add upto 7 analog inputs to view right on the screen. With this unit you won't need to have a pillar gauge set up.

Not 100% sure about the livewire, the only gauge I added to my cts was a fuel pressure gauge. I think the livewire will monitor most everything else.
