I would have gotten an Edge CTS and usually you need to watch ECT, EOT, ET, TransT, Bat Volts, FICM Volts. The first 3 being the major ones and the 4th if you tow is a must. Never trust your dash guages by the time they tell you something is wrong then its already ****ed up. Good monitoring can prevent damage thats why an Edge CTS is so good becouse iyou set levels and when they exceed those levels you know something is going wrond befor it breaks.

I plan on a cts when I can afford one. But, it doesn't do fuel pressure without their eas stuff. Plus I like the look of pillar pods.

My boost and egt are on my attitude monitor.

I have Trinity T1000 which monitors most of the sensors as well as EOT, COT, TT, EGT, Volts, Boost and fuel pressure gauges.

u should just get a scangauge2 and monitor fuel pressure, low side oil pressure as the truck doesnt have a real gauge and whatever else. if u didnt have the attitude monitor, the sg2 and bst, pyro, fp, and low oil pressure would work great in the pillar.

I used to love pillar pods as well, but realized how much of your vision they block. If you really want gauges, I'd go with the above the mirror mounted pod.

My attitude is above mirror. I know they block vision. But not too worried about that.

My gauges are egt, fuel pressure and oil pressure. Air pressure is next for the onboard air compressor n train horns coming soon. I monitor everything else with my CTS.....
