Yeah, I would like them on drivers side a post. I priced some that were about four hindered. But I was hoping to get them cheaper. KCCO!

Pay what ya get for . . .
After doing four on the pillar, I would rip em out, get the big EdgeCTS, and do it that way. EVERYTHING that the truck computer sees, and then just add what else you want.

I went cheap and bought a glowshfit gauge. It worked great for about three months and then the needle stuck in random spots and you would have to tap it. Plus it looked like cheesy tuner crap.

I now run autometer's "factory match" series gauges which look clean and have performed flawlessly ever since.

But the best bang for your buck is a monitor. My only aux analog gauges are boost and pyrometer. I use a LiveWire TS to watch the other stuff.

I can agree, CTS is great! Autometer eh? Imma check into those, I'm looking at either a fuel pressure probe for the CTS or doing another gauge for a quad pillar and replacing my ISSPRO's with something else. To the OP, initially, like previously said, best bang is CTS.

I would argue that fuel pressure and ICP is more important that boost.
