You'll spend more on analog gaugess than the Edge. With the 6.0, you'll need to watch EGT, EOT,ECT,Fuel psi, and boost. Then if you tow a TFT.

Now the Edge Insight CS/CTS can also monitor FICM volts which is also important for the 6.0. Then there is the other PID's that aren't as important to watch, but they come in handy when you need to troubleshoot issues. And don't forget about the code reading capabilities, because the SCT sucks for reading codes.

See where I'm going with this, if you were to buy every analog gauge that the Edge is capable of monitoring, you would spend a whole lot more.

Your gonna want the EAS EGT probe kit. Trust me with all of the cool aditional things you can add it just makes sense. The EAS system works very well and eliminates 25 cables coming thru your firewall and bunches of wiring under the dash.

x2 you want the expandable module. I added Fuel PSI and it's a great relief to know what the motor is doing to you do not damage anything.
