standalone multi-gauge display!!

I really don't want a 3 gauge piller mount. I was trying to find a standalone multi-gauge display... Quick simple clean install... I know I would still have to drill and tap the EGT probe. But after looking around today... I have disscovered that the fine Dorks at Quadzilla has disscontinued the Commander and the other Fine Dorks at Edge created the Insight without making a model for the 7.3L... And the New Scout for Quadzilla is not made for the 7.3L either. As many 7.3L still on the road today... I just can't understand the thinking. I guess i'm glad I don't...

Does anyone know of a company that produces a standalone multi-gauge display...? I seen the one that BD makes... the x-monitor... It's an ugly little turd... but it might be my only option.

Any advice or input would be appriciated... I did send an e-mail to Edge and Quadzilla asking them the reason for no 7.3L versions... I'm sure I might get a reply back... Sounding like an Obama speech.

Screw glowshift.

I would go with a terminator scangauge. It is pretty expensive but you can monitor alot. Like inject pw, ICP, Duty cycles, tranny temps, etc.

I'm not actually sure if it can monitor EGT's or boost.

But it's basically having autoenginuty on a gauge.

I found that bullydog has one-->Watchdog... but for the pyro adapter, it is lol... $135.00 rofl... are u kidding me... I will keep looking.

Thanks Austin for your reply... but that Terminator is way out of my price range esp for the dual and triple gauge function. My wife would kick me square in the sack. Not worth it... I like my sack.

I have the BD-X monitor one and it seems to serve the purpose(came with the truck). I am more a gauge guy though so I was planning on replacing it with 3 gauges.

I just received an e-mail today from a vendor who says the Edge Insight will function within my 7.3L. Even though it claims its just for the 6.0L and 6.4L ... I will have to look into it more and ask alot more questions... so far bullydog watchdog is the only one.
