Programmers...

Are there any programmers,tuners that you can just plug in and have the ability to monitor your trans temp, boost and pyro along with selecting different HP levels like the newer trucks have that will work on our OBS?

I know you will need to get the sending unit for the tranny and the pyro.

Mine is a 95 F250 PSD all stock....

Thanks,

I was looking at the Edge programmers at the 4 Wheel Parts Expo this last Saturday. I want to get the CTS once I get my own F 350. Teh CTS is a touch screen that is big and easy to see and play with. It can monitor everything you listed, and comes with the EGT thermometer to install into your exhaust. I think they go for around $500.

Just do gauges, programmers are not what you want on a 7.3, you want a custom tuned chip

Does anyone make anything like this where you can just monitor and not have any programmer on it? I was looking into the SCT dashscan but not sure if I can monitor trans temp with it. I can monitor what ever the pcm does with it and check dtc. It plugs in at the OBD2 port and costs right at $400 with the egt probe. Seems like a good deal for what it can do. What do you guys think?

That is kind of what I was thinking of Matt....but I just wanted to check before I got the gauges then the chip.

Thanks for the help.

I just ordered my three gauges and A-pillar mount from Summit this morning. I went with the Auto Meter Sport Comp style.

Thanks for all the help.

What is wrong with the programmers for a 7.3, and where is the best place to get a custom tuned chip?
