i prefer the edge insight CTS... you can click on my signature picture to see some setups.. but for a 6.0L i highly recommend the insight CS or CTS because you can pretty much read everything you need off of 1 unit...

You have several choices, depending on what device you may own and how much you want to spend.

Here is a good link.

Write Up: Monitoring the 6.0L PSD.

Edge Insight CS/CTS will be your most expensive if you get the EGT and Fuel psi upgrades. DashBoss for iPad/Itouch/iPhone will run you around $300 with EGT and fuel psi. ScangaugeII will be $120-$160 but you will need to buy separate analog EGT and fuel psi gauges. The cheapest is Torque app for android devices, but you will need to buy separate analog EGT and fuel psi.

I have te SCT livewire. I thought I would like that being a all in one. Well I'm switching to a 4 pod gauge pillar mount to monitor ECT, EOT, EGT & Tranny temp. The SCT is bulky and not as clean looking

If you want just a decent set of "hard" gauges, you can take a look here at our most popular set-ups.
DIESELMANOR GAUGE KITS for 2003-2007 Ford 6.0L Powerstroke
It should give you a better idea of some of the options avaiable.
Any questions let me know.

as much as i like the edge for monitors it looks bad with all the extentions added to it.

Im gonna run fuel pres, egt, trans temp and boost on a piller and use my edge for oil/ water temp and then for other pids during test, tunes and diagnostics.
