On a 6.0, I'd run an obd scanner. With only 3 gauges, you're limited.
You should be able to watch eot, ect, ficm, fuel pressure, boost, egt, and trans temp. That's 7

I made my Samsung SGH-I997 send this.

I agree with Jesilvas. I got my edge insight cts and I love it. Well worth the money and in the long run its cheaper than buying actual gauges

Even though I prefer analog gauges (have 7), the OBDII monitor will give you the best bang for the buck when it comes to monitoring and troubleshooting the 6.0.

Write Up: Monitoring the 6.0L PSD.

Lilpooh I also prefer digital, curious what kind you have. I have four custom made Dakota Digital gauges which if I had single gauges would equal nine.

Running Autometer Sport Comp. EGT, ECT, Boost, Trans on quad "A" pillar and the Trans gauge is split by on/off/on switch to read EOT. Steering column pod holds FP, and digital Volt meter plugged into power port.

Then I also have DashBoss for iOS to monitor 40 PID's of my choice. For back up I've got the Gryphon FICM tuner, SCT X3, and for troubleshooting I have AE. LOL!!

I don't have them yet, but I'm going to run a combination. I want the pyro on the pillar along with fuel pressure, HPOP pressure, and oil pressure. Then I want a digital moniter for the important temps, boost, and what ever else it offers without probes.

"I want" is the key phrase here.
