i personally like analog gauges... but you cant go wrong with the new edge CS or CTS... if you need prices we carry all edge products and Isspro, Autometer and GlowShift gauges...

i was thinking about the CTS because it has the egt probe that can plug into the unit, the only thing i wasnt sure of is other parameters because i dont know if the computer sees actual or just a stepped readings from the factory sensors on the 7.3. plus i had edges dashhawk unit in my last car which is similar just less fancy and i loved being able to moniter so many PIDs

But if the other gauges just tap into factory wires then it would be the same from analog gauges, but thats what i dont know lol

You're going to have to install the sensors for analogs, EGT, trans temp, and boost, or whatever you choose to monitor

ya i mean i would prefer to not have to drill into my trans and block if i didnt have to, i mean the EGT i dont mind cause theres no getting around that. Unless they dont involve drilling that is. honestly i have never installed a bunch of gauges before always just gone digital in my past vehicles.
