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

Is the Edge Insight available for a 2000 7.3L? I thought it was,but after doing a few searches i'm coming up empty handed.
