I have looked and can't find it??????????

First and foremost thinks for the advise! Like I have said before I am all new to the diesel thing so once again I need some help. I have looked and looked for a plug on my 05 F350 and cant find it. Can anyone tell me where this thing is located so when cold weather comes I can find it? Also I have another question. Everyone is telling me to get gauges first, I know I need three right EGT, Boost and ???. By the way my truck has a factory boost gauge is it not right or is it just better to have another. Also are the gauges hard to install? Thanks A Bunch!!!

passenger side, either tucked in behind the bottom left corner of the grill.....or just to the left of the passengers side front tow hook


for the other question:

The stock boost is close enough(mine is dead on),..unless you are gonna go all out and build a race truck\



Gauges are pretty straight forward to install,...just read the instructions that come with them.

There is a chance that your truck doesn't have a block heater installed which is why you can't find the plug. My '04 didn't have one and I was told that not all trucks come from the factory with a block heater. They only cost about $35 IIRC if yours doesn't have it. If you search the old threads there was a discussion on here about them a while back.

Here's a good link with pics for what's involved in installing the standard gauges on a 6.0:
Gauge Installations at DieselManor- 2003-2007 6.0L Powerstroke


If you don't do boost and need another gauge to fill a 3-4 gauge A-pillar pod, Fuel Pressure and Voltmeter would be nice. Or Oil Temp, Water Temp, etc..

Look behind the passenger front tire on the frame rail. You should see a wire loom running down the frame with clips every few inches. If there is no wireloom, you don't have the cord. To my knowledge, all the trucks came with the block heater but not all came with the cord.

Here are some pics of what you should see. It is the black cord with the grey clips attached to it which clip into the frame.

Plug

Only northern trucks came with the plug after '04 or '05. They all have the block heater just not the plug.
