Cool Who's using Mechanical gauges?

I was just wanting to know who all is using mechanical gauges on the A-pillar. I know not everyone has the DashDaq or SCT, so what brand and gauges are you using. Where are the best deals on a nice gauge/pod package deal...?!

thanks man. it was a bout 2 years ago so I don't, but I found one selling all the gauges i wanted and then sent him an email seeing if he would cut me a package deal, which he did. We did do the deal outside of ebay so it saved both of us some money

If you add the mechanical gauges to the 6.4L, do you have to install the probes, or can you tap into the truck's OEM temp probes?

You can do it either way. But IMO the egt probe gets the best read from the manifold...
