Programmer

I want a programmer that has the gauges and everything. I figure its the same price as a gauge cluster and i get performance but what kind should I go with?? That's where I'm stumped. Brand and where I can buy. Thnks.

I run the sct livewire. But to be completely honest I wish I would have bought a sct sf3 and edge cs insight combo deal. Edge insight is great monitor and sct is the best way to go with a 6.0 I bought the sct livewire and I love it but I still wish I would have went the other route though.

I don't know to much about the 7.3 but I heard like tony wildman, php, and ones like that that are custom tuned. I think for around $175 but for the 7.3 I believe they don't have a lot of the sensors the 6.0 and up have. So I would imagen that your best bet would be to go with some analog gauges

^^ This. Even with digital gauge display, you will have to install a pyrometer in the exhaust and a temp sensor on the transmission and drill into the intake for a boost reading. IMHO, analog is the best bet on any truck especially an OBS. Plus, I think they are more accurate
