I've never heard of that brand, so I'd be reluctant to get them. As far as budget gauges, glowshift would be what you're looking for. Though I would highly recommend saving a little while longer and getting some ISSPRO's. They're worth the wait and a vendor here can hook you up. Do it right, do it once.

You could also look at the 3 in 1 gauge by glowshift. I believe its ~$150 and digital readings. There's a few guys on here running it and are happy with it.

The sct x3 is only a flash programer and will not monitor engine vitals ( oil temp - pressure - water temp - trans temp - egt's - boost ect ) rite, what sct product is it that will handle monitoring and cary tunes that are safe to run on a non studded 6.0 . I'm in Ca. but will be moving to Az. before I have to smog again, and do I need to have the egr setup in Az. or can I delete it. Sorry for the hi-jack but I see knowledge I'd like to tap into. Thanks.

I just installed my GlowShift Quad pillar and it works great. I have Egt, Boost, Fuel, Trans
Fuel pressure was the worst one to install because of the sensor adapter and sensor not having any room to work with.
