LCD monitor questions

I am in need of a boost/pyro gauge for my truck.I like the "exact" reading that you get with an LCD monitor,but i don't know that much about them.With a monitor,do you have to purchase sending units for the functions you want to monitor?If not,where does it get the signal from?Would i still have to drill into my exhaust manifold?A while back i read that the computer on a 7.3L monitors EGT.Not sure how true that is.Is the Edge monitor a dependable unit?Your opinions will be greatly appreciated.Thanks!

I would like to purchase a digital monitor this week.The Quadzilla Recon XZT looks like a simple but effective unit.I also like the edge insight but have heard about some quality issues with it.This is the style i want.I would sincerely appreciate any help in this choice.I really want to go digital,but i don't want a tuner combo at this time.Thanks for the help!

i have sold a lot of edge Insights with no problems at all with them so far.... you will have to buy the EGT probe for it if you want to read EGT's
