what gauges do i need

I have a 2001 7.3 power stroke I am going to add a three gauge pillar. I know I need a trans temp gauge but i am a little confused on the before and after EGT gauge. Do i need these and why or are there different gauges i need? I guess i should mention I live out west and pull my toy hauler somtimes up to 10,000 ft. If you guys can give me some sugestions and why Id appreciate it

what do you mean about before and after EGT? you only need a pre turbo EGT in the intake manifold... next weould be boost...

we have a few package deals you can choose from:

94-09 FORD Superduty 3 GAUGE KIT
Auto Meter Gauge Kits
Isspro Gauge Kit

if you have any questions please feel free to ask

Definitely EGT and trans, and the boost is fun to watch and brag about, but if I had to do it over I'd go with fuel pressure instead. Both help with diagnostics, but the problems you diagnose with fuel pressure are more relevant to getting down the road.

1500*F EGT gauge is fine. If your temps run up that high you need to be thinking about letting off the hot pedal anyway.

1500 is the one. Your gonna melt pistons before that, so the lower limit gives you better definition. I have Isspro EV1, very nice match to stock gauges, but EV2 is easier install and looks just as good. Many run Autometer, most dis Glo Shift, but I have no experience with either. Search for installation threads, lots of good info and pix around here!
