Want reliability. Manual gauges or dash Sct/edge programmer
I want to do some stuff to my truck, but I need to get gauges first. Quoting me 500 bucks installed for Isspro pyro, boost, and trans temp. Shop suggested the Edge CTS because you get all the gauges plus some for only 100 bucks more. Wouldn't hurt to be able to get oil temp, pressure, and other things for the same cost.
However, most on here don't like the factory tune stuff or Edge stuff in general. The SCT one is nice, but about 1k! I would lean towards the manual gaugues just because I don't care about speed. I just want this truck to last for 10 years. (99 f-250 with 190k.) However, I do read about some of the custom tunes that could account for future exhaust, intake, tires, etc and improve gas mileage so that interests me.
Thoughts. Just go ahead and get the gauges and add a oil temp or something for an extra 80 bucks? Or wait and get a dash mounted computer gauge and custom tune down the road?
