I am running 2 of them with add sensors for fuel PSI, EGT, and bost PSI. These 2 gauges allowed me to go from 4 gauges on my pillar and steering column to just 2 gauges.

I have mine set to scan between boost, fuel PSI, transmission temp, EGT, HPOP PSI, and HPOP Duty Cycle.

They can read anything the PCM can read. They also can do a CCT and injector buzz test.

I like having 2 of these instead of 4 of the others.

What do you need to do to get this to read EGT? Does it require an additional sensor?

Yes, it takes an extra sensor and a box to convert the sensors reading into what the ScanGauge can read.

I have a total of $650 in both my ScanGauges and all the extra sensors that I have installed (fuel PSI, boost PSI, and EGT).

They do pull the PCM codes when the check engine comes on. They will also clear them as well.
