Gauges would be nice

One thing about this truck that drives me crazy is no oil pressure gauge. It's a Lariat, so on the dash shouldn't I be able to get an oil pressure reading? Maybe a voltmeter? I like gauges, good to know how things are. Feels like flying blind without them. Is there some way to pull info from all these high tech electronics on this thing? I'd appreciate knowing how if there is. Thanks.

I use the Scan Gauge 2....it gives you egt, oil temp, coolant temp, voltage, trans temp...amongst others....not sure if it'll do oil pressure though or not.

I 2nd the SG2. I don't use it in my SD but I have it in my trail rig Sport Trac and has a lot of different things you can display (up to 4 different things at a time). If I remember correctly, there is a way to save like 2 different 4-gauge screens but don't quote me on the last part. It's really slim and can easily fit in a lot of places.

Plus 3 on the scan gauge 2. I use one in my truck and love it. Way more accurate than stock gauges

You guys that use the SG2, do you know the codes for anything on the 6.4? Picked one up while looking for a 6.0. Great gauge and I'd love to use it to ensure health of my soon to be new 6.4

I use the Edge Insight CTS. Great monitor. Not a tuner.

Here you go. Scroll down to Ford 6.4L

Ford/Lincoln/Mercury Specific : Linear Logic : Home of the ScanGauge

Thanks everybody.
Looks like with all that technology in the truck, there is some way to get that to display on the lcd readout on the dash. I'll let you know if I figure out a way to get readings without an aftermarket gauge setup.

I've also got the code that will read EGT from the sensor in the manifold if you're deleted and have removed the sensors in the exhaust pipe.......

You are going to need to use a t-connector and add your own sensor.

The 6.4 oil sensor is (does it have oil pressure yes/no) and does not return the actual pressure reading.

I think it like 75 PSI = yes.
