You could use an HKS or APEXi, but you'd have to do the wiring manually as they don't sell plug in kits for these trucks. Shouldn't be too hard. I wired in my HKS to my Eagle Talon without the adapter kit.

Depends on which ones you get. But they can range anywhere from $200-500 depending on options. The HKS i have in my Talon displays rpm (with shift point warnings), speed, voltage, o2 sensor readings, and can even do basic VSS based 0-100km/h and 0-200km/h functions along with 1/4 mile estimates.

It all depends on how long you use the timer. On my Talon I use the auto function on my HKS that monitors the engine's rpms over the last couple of minutes worth of driving to determine how long it should idle for. It can range anywhere from 30 seconds to 2 minutes depending on how hard I was driving. I like to be able to lock the vehicle and go do my business while it handles the cooling.
