Have you looked at the "Edge Insight" (around $370 with the EGT probe?) Or maybe a "ScangaugeII" (around $169, but doesn't do EGT) Neither one does fuel pressure though.

I'm using both. I have a Diprocol Boost and EGT gauge on my pillar. I use the ScanGauge II for everything else, ECT, EOT, Trans, Volts, Etc...

all Temp gauges are electric... boost is mechanica and fuel pressure can be both but def go with electric.. you dont want to have to run fuel into the cab for a mech fuel pressure gauge...

like said above... i recommend the edge insight...

I just snagged a used Insight w/ EGT probe for $185 shipped. Since the new ones are coming out you can find awesome deals on used ones. Mine is in perfect condition as well, and I got a painted pillar pod (happen to be the same color as my interior ) for $25 shipped!

I plan on getting a steering column pod, and filling it with a Dipricol fuel pressure gauge.
