forget the edge juice. Just pick up a set of isspro gauges, locate them where you like them. I prefer the pillar.

Then sell that superchips and get a custom tuned chip.

2001 - 14" OUO 525 - 38x15.5x20 Toyo & 20x12 Weld Cheyenne's. Hybrids, 38R, BTS, Spearco, Terminators..

Layson is correct.

BUT if you want an all in one digital unit, edge has you covered, its called an edge insight, its really nice and its very accurate compared to my analog gauges, here is a picture:


A custom tuned chip would fit you much better, wether it be a SCT or DI or a TW chip or a DP tuner, they would all be 10 times better then superchips.

Let me know if you would like some prices.

I have the EV series from Isspro. Very satisfied with them except for lighting at night time. They are hard to read but that's only cause I'm too lazy to order led bulbs and put them in

I don't like the all in one units, give me separate gauges everytime!! If one goes out you normally loose all your gauges, especially if you need to send it off, or God forbid have to buy a new one!!! The only gauges I use and install are the Isspro EV's. You can PM me for a source with the best pricing.
