ATS Diesel Insight Mount with 4 Gauge Pillar Pod

Hey guys,

I'm about to purchase a quad gauge pillar pod with DiPricol gauges in it (EGT, Boost, Full Sweep Trans, and Fuel Pressure), but I plan on keeping my Edge Insight to monitor EOT, ECT (is there anything else I should monitor?), and to read codes. What do you guys think about this combo? I plan on selling my EGT probe and my pillar pod from my Insight to help offset some cost.

Here's the gauges I'm looking at:



I have been on a ravenous search for a tasteful way to mount the Insight along with my quad pod, and I stumbled upon the ATS diesel mount. Will this work with my quad pod?

Picture of the mount with a triple gauge pillar pod:

why not buy a 4 pillar pod and the pillar edge juice pod... you could then cut the bottom pod from the 4 pillar pod and mount juice pod there... if you could then use some good epoxy and resin and make it look like 1 unit..

I am getting a 4 gauge pod, but it's gonna be filled with gauges. I need to find a place to mount the Insight besides the pillar, since there will be four gauges mounted on the pillar.

Here is my current setup:

Well see, that would add even more cost to the project. I'm trying to find out if the ATS diesel mount will infact work with a quad pod. I would also prefer to have all my gauges to my left, in one area, so I can simply glance up and check my parameters.

I have seen that too, I want something to be clean and classy though. I need it to flow, I'm super anal about my truck.
