Have you ever thought about going with a digital monitor to act as your gauges? A lot of 6.0L guys go that route because you can watch FICM voltage along with a bunch of other vital info.

With something like the Edge Insight, Dash Boss or Scan Gauge you can monitor several things are once. On my Insight CS I can monitor up to 8, but I only use 6.


Justin, I was just in Oakdale last week to pick up some parts.

Does the Banks product plug into the OBDII port, or is it under the hood? As long as your OBDII port is open, a digital monitor will work. We offer one called the Infinity. HERE is a link if you would like to check it out. Ours is a programmer as well, so it serves more than one purpose.

I'm a little biased to DieselManor's gauge kits.

DIESELMANOR GAUGE KITS for 2003-2007 Ford 6.0L Powerstroke

Here's a direct linky to the 2 gauge kit: ISSPRO EV2 Gauge Kits for Ford Powerstroke from DieselManor


If you have any questions shoot me an email. We are very knowledgable on gauges and can answer any question you may have. If you do order a kit, be sure to use the coupon code in my sig.

IMO, don't even waste your money of analog gauges. For the price of just 2-3 gauges, you can get a digital monitor that is capable of monitoring 40+ sensors and lets you clear/read CEL, not to mention other features.

Just look under the dash and see if there is something connected to the port. If not, then you can use a digital monitor with your current setup.
