boost, etg's and trans temp are the main ones that are recommended. From there, you can monitor anything you want... but most don't monitor more than those three.

I'd be better off flying you down to FL and paying you 2 hours labor than spending 5 hours of my own time monkeying around. Me and wires don't go together very nicely.

Really, its not hard at all, go to DieselManor - Taking the Mystery out of Diesel Performance™ and look at the instructions he has there. His kits are the best put together avalable, everything you need is there. No running to a parts store halfway...

If you're still on the fence about it, I'm sure there are local guys in your area that would be willing to help.

Just post up in the FLA forums.

What do you guys think about the thermocouple options - drill/tap the manifold or use the clamp style on the turbo down pipe. I thought that I read that the manifold was a better read?

The pyro goes in the exhaust manifold. Drill/tap it... very easy.
