Gauges

OK, I am going to drive all you guys/gals crazy with questions till I get this powerstroke thing down (drove cummins for many years), got a heck of a deal on a 2002 e-350 superduty, trying to get her set-up as I will use her in my business(towing trailers around the country).

I have always had a egt, trans temp, fuel pressure gauges in all my past trucks(Dodges)

Question #1: are there any other gauges that are vital to the 2002 e-350 superduty with the 7.3 powerstroke?

Question #2: I have seen that on some of the programer/chips out there can be bought with a display of egt, trans temp, etc... are these a plug & play (Like a superchips programer) or do you still have to add the sensors ie: to trans line, turbo/exshaust.

Thanks

With the edge (& all others like it) do you still have to install the sensors or does it read them from the pcm?

Thanks
