Why should I get a different boost gauge?
I'm getting ready to order some gauges.
I was planning on getting an EGT and Tranny temp. My truck is a 2005 and already has the boost and tranny temp but I figure the tranny temp is nearly an idiot guage because it never seems to move when I'm towing and I know something must be getting hotter when I tow up Black Mountain NC.
As for the stock boost gauge, it's readings seem snappy and reasonable. Why do people buy an after market boost gauge if the truck already has a functional gauge?
Also does anyone have a strong opinion on which EGT gauge is better? I plan on ordering gauges from Diesel Manor because they have such great on-line support.
2005 F250 XLT crew cab used for camper towing, kid hauling and commuting:
Banks Monster Exhaust, Banks Ram Air Intake, SCT with tunes from Innovative Diesel, Zoodad mod, High Idle Mod, Reverse light floods, ARE Shell, HAM Radio Antennas (80m-10m screwdriver, 2m, 440, 6m whip)
First 25k was run on Biodiesel but it's too much trouble so I'm dino-diesel only now > 50k
