Best Gauges to Get

Through all the advice on here I think i have decided to go with a SCT programmer for my truck. So im thinking I should first buy a set of Gauges. What is a good place to get gauges and what brands would yall recomend. When I get that done ill be back asking the same questions about what SCT and where to get it. Thanks for any advice.

Autometer seem to be a top choice along with DiProcol. It's really about looks and costs in the end. I now have a dual LCD display SPA which shows EGT and Boost PSI on one gauge.
Any one of the site sponsors should carry what you want, just shop around, ask more questions and order when you are ready.

The SCT has plenty of tuning specialist to choose from each with their own unique way of making power. Innovative, GoGo, DJ, Spartan, Elite all have good reps and experience putting the power down.

Thanks for the advice HeavyAssult. I was looking at the edge set up because of the LCD display that shows everything. What is the SPA dispay you have? BTW I really like your truck. I wish mine was a single wheel, that dually wheel gets in the way alot.

I got mine from Diesel Manor. I like the needle and pod look over LCD. They have three pod kit that is easy to install, comes with pic's for the none wire friendly people like me. Even gave me an active duty discount.

Dual Gauges - Buy dual gauges online

I have the black faced version...I need to add some pics to my gallery.

Thanks for the compliment, it's been a work in progress as all love-hate relationships have their ups and downs.

Thats how I feel about my truck, when shes running good, i love her, when shes giving trouble or down, I hate her. Even when I hate her the most, I wouldnt get rid of her for anything.
