Gauge ?

Looking for some kind of electrical gauge with OBD connection to keep an eye on everything happening in the truck. I have seen the Edge products but is there anything else? Maybe smaller price tag?

You could try Dp tuner I think he does a gauge monitor.

3 things you can do, you can get an SCT either X4 or Live wire, both monitor but need EGT probe, x4 can tune. Next, you can get the edge and get the EGT probe. Finally you can get a BAFX OBD2 reader and an old phone or a tablet. They will do everything you need but not EGT.

I was reading about some of the OBD 2 readers and some were not compatible with diesel engines. Have you found this to be true??

You can get the OBDII adapter off Amazon for like $25 and then get the Torque App Pro for like $5 and use a tablet or phone.

I already have a programmer and chip. Is the Edge SCT2 just a display that plugs into the OBD2??
