Gauges

I was looking and reading around and saw that the most important gauges I should get for my 2007 6.0 is the EGT, fuel pres., and oil temp. The trouble is that I cannot find a pod package/digital package with these three. All of them seem to include a boost gauge and two of the others. I dont see the need for an aftermarket boost gauge because I have a boost gauge in the factory instrument cluster. Does anyone have any recommendations? Also, I was able to find an oil temp gauge but it only comes with a universal sending unit. Any ideas on where one would mount an oil temp sensor? Thanks for the help!

I second the Insight
I have the CS the smaller and non touchscreen version.
Digital display, able to set alarms, lots of pids to select from, user friendly.

DISPLAYS FICM and ICP <3

Also it can pull most codes some fun things like quarter mile tests etc..

Cool, thanks for all the help. My next question wil be where do I get the Edge CTS system. I can find the gauge no problem, but the EOT, EGT, and Fuel pres. (EAS) system seems to be hard to find. Where can I get the whole package?

The Edge will do them all but the cost of the fuel pressure for the edge is high to me i like the Autometer on a column mount.
You need to get the pyro that is expandable http://stealth-automotive.com/index....roduct_id=1634

I bought my entire setup from BPD, along with the fuel filter cap that will house the sensor. I'm guessing you can find all the parts for less out there but BPD's support is 2nd to none so that made it worthwhile for me.

There are other spots to get a fuel pressure reading - just do a search here and you'll find plenty of alternate solutions, I went with the cap and it was really easy to install.

Here's a pic of the sensor mounted in the filter cap:


and how I mounted the CTS EAS plugs behind the battery junction box:


Off the top of my head here are the parts - From BPD Site:
Edge CTS
EGT Probe + EAS starter kit
Fuel Pressure Sensor
EAS 2 port expander (for Fuel pressure sensor + future sensor)
Bling - just couldn't resist - fuel filter cap

But please call them to confirm these items - they are super helpful! And as I said, there many different ways to do this - I found the Edge CTS/EAS to be a nicely integrated solution, and it's made in the USA.

Yes there is another place to pick up the fuel pressure and that is the test port.
Page 30: Fuel Supply System

This is what i got for the fuel pressure gauge, it goes into the test port, this is a cool set up gets the sender away from the heat and viberation of the motor.
