New Guy with a few queastions

i just bought my truck last month its a 1999 F350 ext cab long bed 7.3 with a 6 speed with 75000 miles. Its bone stock with the exception of a chip i dont know what kind or anything it was on there when i got the truck. its my first diesel truck and i absolutly love it! After doing some searching on the site for a while i went with isspro ev2 gauges (Boost, Egt, Fuel Pressure). just waiting for them to arrive! Now for the queastions....

1. when i drill the exhaust i have to drill through the manifold and not the pipe going up to the turbo?

2. for the fuel pressure sending unit. does it go on the fuel filter bowl, and if it does isnt there a plug on the back side i can just screw it in there?

3. for the boost i can just drill and tap the Y on top of the motor? right

thanks for all the help

Welcome ONE-TON.
1. Yes the manifold.
2. Im not so sure about that since I dont run one right now.
3. Most kits come with a T that you install in the line going to the map sensor. Other guys delete the AIH and get a plug thats tapped from riff raff. You can get that herehttp://www.riffraffdiesel.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=RRD&Product_Co de=RDPAIH&Category_Code=F731-G-M

4 Here is a good set of instruction on the install...its from autometer. Auto Meter

No problem. It isnt that hard to do. Just takes some patience. Im actually suprised no one else chimed before me. Usually pretty fast around here.

Just a suggestion but I know a lot of guys have had problems with tying into the map sensor for boost (including me). I suggest tapping into your I/C pipe close to the turbo. In the MAP line I was only reading 8 PSI of boost and it was inconsistent but when I swtiched to my I/C pipe (close to the turbo) it was around 35 PSI. Also, when you drill into your manifold MAKE SURE you grease your drill bit to avoid any shavings from getting into the motor. And lastly if your fuel bowl is the same as mine your can easily tie right inro the side of it for fuel pressure. Congrats on the truck!

Yes for the boost guage you can drill and tap right into the Y pipe coming from the turbo to the intercooler pipes. Mine is located there and works just fine.

i was going to pull the ic pipe off when i drill and tap it if i go that route which i think im gonna do. i ordered them from steel @ gos performance he was a huge help. has anyone wired in the ev2s? i only got the fuel pressure gauge as of now...the others will be in soon. it came with the sending unit and an orange clip where a total of 6 wires tap into which gets plugged into the back of the gauge. the s/u has 3 wires a ground, sensor, and +/- 5v. the instructions say the other 3 are for 12v supply, dimmer, and a ground. my queastion is. is the dimmer also the power for the backlight or does that come from the main 12v supply.

I installed the same gauges in my truck. Just follow the directions that Diesel Manor sent you and you can't go wrong. They are really easy to follow and have pictures that make it even eaiser.

practice putting the pod in without the gauges before you paint it...it is a little tricky and once it is painted and there are wires coming down the back of it, it is pretty easy to ding the paint.
