The best way to go with your 97 is going to be individual gauges...

There arent many options, if any, for monitors on these trucks.

...although I think you can get the Bully Dog Outlook Monitor, not sure if there are any others, maybe someone will chime it.

Gauges will still look better though.

Ive seen those, they are pretty interesting. My buddy has ordered one and we will be putting it into his super duty soon. We'll see how it is.

Quadzilla Commander will work for everything but Boost...the 94-97 trucks had a digital signal map sensor and the 99-03 had an analog signal. Ive got one for my truck and it works good. If you haven't done anything to your truck you shouldn't need a boost gauge anyway (you'd be dissapointed once you see how little boost our trucks make) but you can just get an autometer boost gauge or something and mount it up quick.

...Or get a Super Duty MAP sensor from a salvage yard and add that in addition to your stock one to get you boost. I've heard of guys doing this, but not exactly sure how. I'd just stick with a good 'ole boost gauge myself...

hey thats a good idea i never thought of doing so. All you'd have to do is splice off the other wires but send the signal right to a ground instead of back to the comp as well as t-off the intake tube and run it.
