Which Gauge?

With the mods in my sig which gauge would be better to get? Fuel Pressure or HPO pressure? Im getting a single gauge mount for the steering column from Matt and wanted to monitor my injection pressures some but I dont know which one would be better? Both would be nice but the money and mounting is not working out right now.

Opinions will likely vary, but I'd probably be more interested in HPO pressure myself if I had to choose only one.

Best!

If I had it to do over again, the first or perhaps second gauge I would have bought would have been a Scan Gauge from Terminator. The darn thing literally will read everything your OBD II port outputs, read codes, clear them, etc.
They are not cheap, but they are worth it.

That is definately a nice gauge, pricey is right but it may be worth it.

To each his own, but like I said now that I have one I wish I'd bought it years ago.
Does lots of stuff and easy to wire, just plugs into yout OBD II port, and you are done.
f you call Joey at Terminator he can tell you what you will read based on the year of your truck.
Right now I have mine displaying ICP % and pressure.
Very interesting stuff.

That might just be the guage I get How can it read hp, torque, injection timing and all from the OBDII? The SCT X3 cant do that on my truck, it cant read injection timing or throttle postion or anything....it says "invalid"

On mine it reads everything you said but hp and torque. Call Joey at Terminator and he can tell you exactly what yours will read based on your truck's year. I have mine set on IPR % duty cycle and HPOP pressure right now.
