i would not get it until the gauges are in, your EGT will get out of hand and you dont know what will happen to head gaskets...

can you? yes. should you? maybe not. I run hot tunes but I honestly never look at my gauges anyways. Gauges don't determine whether you're truck is gonna "blow up and melt into ashes" like some make it out to be, your right foot does. IMO, be sensible and you'll be fine without gauges.
