Gauge Question

Decided on ordering an SCT X3, Wondering what gauge set up is recommended. Trippe gauge set or or an Edge Insight...

I'd get the pillar gauges, 35psi gauge will be fine as long as you dont plan on going bigger turbo

Typical cummins owner.

you just need boost, pyro and trans temp... either the traditional analog that go on your pillar or youc an go with something like the edge insight...

here is our gauge combo: SCT X3 Custom Innovative Diesel Tunning/ Gauge Combo Kit

and the insight combo: SCT X3 Custom Innovative Diesel Tuning/ Insight Combo

let me know if you have any questions

60psi boost. 1500* at least pyro and a tranny temp. I prefer analog pillar and I have the isspro and like them a lot.

Personally, the A-pillar 3-pod looks cooler. Gives a truck some "toughness". That's my opinion anyway.

I have Autometer Z-series gauges - EGT (1600*), Boost (35psi) and Tranny Temp (250*).

But enough about me - The ol' rule applies - "Your money, your truck, your decision." - Good luck!!
