dp tuner or ts6 and guages

So I'm getting ready to buy a programmer and want to know what I should go with? I'm leaning towards the dp tuner infinity. What I want to know is will I get decent readings with the infinity or should I go with a ts6 and run my own sending units? I like the fact the infinity can view and clear codes but am worried the stock sending units aren't suitable for accurate readings. I'm hoping some guys that have had both can chime in. Thanks for all info.

done?...for now

As long as all of the sending units are in good working order, the readings are very accurate. I used to run a set of pillar gauges before I ran the Infinity and have compared them against each other. The boost numbers were almost spot on(less than 1psi variance), and trans temp was very close as well(less than 10* difference at all times). The trans temp will usually read a tad hotter through the OBDII port because the fluid temp is taken from a sender inside the solenoid body. Fluid temperature in the test port or pan is a little bit cooler.

You can also add additional inputs/sensors to the Infinity as well, which will enable you to monitor parameters that are not seen by the PCM.

If you have any questions about the Infinity or its features, don't hesitate to ask. I would be happy to help you out.

I'm currently running a TS 6 pos in my truck along with the Edge CS for my gauges and I am pretty happy with this set up. I kept going back and forth between analog gauges and the CS but I'm happy with my Decision.

I've been eyeballing the cts as well it is a tough choice but I like the features the infinity offers. But I'm with you I think the monitor is the way to go just cleaner looking with more info and i am going with a ts chip.

I have a CTS and Gauges along with a ts 6 postion. Its a great setup to keep an eye on everything. Gotta remember the PCM doesnt monitor everything on our trucks so the analog gauges catch up the difference (egt, accurate trans temp, boost).

Trucks and parts............
