Basic Monitoring - What's Best?

I have a 2004 and need a monitoring system that will tell me basic things like boost and allow me to monitor temperatures. I don't plan on adding tunes, just want to monitor everything. What product would best fit that need? Thanks for the help.

Scangauge II should be around $170 the best bang for the buck. Will runs things like boost, EOT, ECT, FICM, etc.

Edge Insight CTS will do all the necessary 6.0L stuff plus you can hook up a Pyro for EGT's. The Edge EAS system is really cool and easy to expand in the future.

If you already have an apple iphone, ipad or ipod that has bluetooth the Dashboss is a great monitor and is the same price as the Scangauge II but you can monitor up to 24 things at one time.

How can you read 24 things at once on an iPod or an iPhone. And where can you mount an iPad? Hell, I'd need a 17" laptop to read 24 things at once,.

Got questions about your 6.0?

You can't monitor them simultaneously Mitch. You can monitor 12 at one time then have the option to switch to a gauge style screen where you have dial gauges that sweep like analog and they show up to 4 PID's at a time and there are 3 available screens to choose from. He was saying that without going back and swapping PID's that you can easily monitor up to 24 PID's.

If you think it's impossible with the iPAD to mount them somewhere you ought to talk to Sean who runs the Torque App. He knows a BUNCH of guys that have custom mounts in their vehicles for the iPAD that looks SICK!

And if you want that 17" monitor, then you can do "video out" feature.

With the CTS, I can switch between all of my vehicles as long as they have the ODBII connector, is that accurate? Would be nice to use it to read codes on my other vehicles if/when the check engine light comes on.
