I went with gauges and xcal3. I wanted analog gauges, not digital, plus I read the livewire display wasn't the most reliable. I drilled and tapped the manifold for the egt with the manifold still on the truck.

welcome to the org. mine will be drilled on the truck for the egt when i get around to doing it. i just run boost for now and both guages are autometer. i would at a minimum run egt and boost. some do tranny temp also. more important if towing heavy.

I have an Edge Insight installed and I like it a lot. I't lets you look at anything the computer sees and allows you to seet up cutom screens you can easilt flip to in case you want tho look at other params.
