dp and guages

I am looking to purchase a DP F5 chip in the near future.

My question now is about guages. I prefer digital to the regular style. Anyone know anything about the Quadzilla Recon? I kinda like the setup, but wonder if it will work ok with DP.

If not, any suggestions?

I don't know anything about the recon My dad has the commander and he has had some issues with it. The water temp readings are wacky and a few other issues. Does the recon have an egt probe? If it does I don't see why it woudn't work with a chip or tuner.

yep. comes with the egt probe.

it's supposed to read boost from the MAP sensor, trans temp from a port on the trans. (maybe a diag.port?) and egt.

...for like $179.

thanks vitalidle.

i didn't want to get a chip/tuner without getting guages first. at $179 the Recon seems like a good deal. I don't really tow much with my truck and it isn't a daily driver. So, it's not under constant motor stress by any means!

Its is a hobby truck and I wanna make it kinda a 4x4 hot rod to smoke (...literally...) the little annoying ricers when I do decide to put my foot into it. :burnout

Next on my list is a DIY intake (...or s & b....havent decided...)

...doesn't seem like that hard to do either. maybe like an hour or 2.

It seems like a great setup. ...and you cant beat the cost!
