Haven't heard much about the watchdog, but the edge monitors are a pretty solid pick.

Are you looking for just a monitor or would you like a product that will tune and monitor? Either way, check out our Infinity. It is the most advanced unit on the market. It will tune, monitor generic and Ford enhanced data, run 7.3L specific diagnostic tests, datalog, read/clear DTC's, and more. You can also add additional inputs that the PCM does not monitor such as EGT and fuel pressure.

HERE is a link to it on our website.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Not trying to jack the thread but I to don't want to do individual gauges and would like to do a monitor. I was disappointed when I found that banks iq doesn't work for the 7.3.

Justin I have a Ts chip. Is this compatible with the dp setup?

The Infinity will work with any chip or without a chip at all. A chip(such as your TS) plugs into the PCM whereas the Infinity plugs into the OBDII port. You cannot runs tunes from the chip and tunes from the Infinity at the same time though. The chip tunes will override the Infinity tunes.

So yes, the Infinity will work with your chip intact. You just cannot runs tunes from both at the same time. You can purchase the Infinity without tunes if you would like it just for monitoring, datalogging, code reading, and diagnostic testing.

We are also about to release a product that will enable the Infinity to connect to any modern multi-position chip and change tunes on the chip straight from the screen on the Infinity.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Justin, that was exactly what i was wanting to know, whether or not you can adjust the chip from the infinity. Great news, thank you. I will wait till the new part comes out to order.

Glad I could clear that up for you. The new product should be available within a couple weeks.
