whos tuning did you end up going with?

my advice is gauges as soon as possible... egt, trans temp and boost....

and an exhaust to keep EGT's down

ah k.. i have never heard of anyone using that...

but you still need the egt prove and a trans temp.. i hope you got a really good deal on it because if not after you add the probe and the trans temp gauge you prob could of just but a full set of regular gauges

got it for 170 on ebay but i wanted the digital display and the ability to datalog while i watch and it has a built in horsepower and 1/4 mile time calculator. plus it shows a lot of other info that i like to see, injector PW and pressure and so on. im a tech so the more i know the happier i am i think you are right though i probably will spend a little more than if i would have gotten gauges but then again i would be surrounded by gauges. knowing me though i will end up with a lot more than i need.
