MeTo The two channel display has a terminal to attache a signal wire from a lights on (hot) source. A parameter can be adjusted to manipulate the amount of dimming desired. The display has an internal high/low warning LED and an adjustable contact to control external accessories. I.e. audio alarm, water/meth injection or what ever. All this for a ~$30 display. It's definitely not for the retro crowd.

Happy holidays everyone.

White95f250 I got my gauges on their own dimmer switch so I can adjust them seperate of the dash.

That digital read out is nice though. Good to see something different.

MeTo I purchased the display, thermocouple (EGTs) and the pressure sender (fuel) from Auber Industries. I have efuel, so the pressure sender is in a port on the return regulator. With a stock fuel (fuel bowl) I would remove the schrader valve and put the sensor in there.

Ok can't send a pm
What type of sensor is used for fuel pressure? Where is it connected?

I didn't choose those because you lose sight of the road ahead anytime you check them. Not good. I choose a Auber brand instrument. It's duel channel, square and mounts great just right of the diesel lights. Mine displays EGTs and fuel pressure. What each channel senses depends on the sensor you choose for each? AND, it has many user adjustable parameters and auxiliary contacts.
got any pics of that?

JustinOOO9 The wicked wheel 2 turbo wheel will help with towing too. you can install it at home in a couple of hours and was a nice addition for towing.

I added the 6.0l trans cooler and reduced trans temp 25+ degrees empty and towing
I added a john woods custom valve body helped firm and quicken shifts a lot.

I got a nice deal on a used ww2 wheel and the shift kit cost me like $245 plus shipping my core back and then changing the trans fluid and filer maybe 7-8 quarts. Overall a very nice set up for towing with daily driver feel too. I don't run tunes very much anymore not that they don't help but I have a very rare ecm code and php, 1023, and few others just have a lot of trouble with the shifting on it. I had to have custom tunes done and still waiting on a revision from php. 1023 hasn't emailed me back since December of 2017 so that's pretty much a lost cause. Dan from SDK made some tunes for a buddies truck and I really liked the shifting for the tow and eco tunes.

00t444e You can't monitor egts with the torque app because there is no sensor and the boost will only read to 24 PSI since that is as high as the map sensor will read. I don't recommend putting a chip on it unless you have a way to monitor egts, boost, and trans temp if it's an auto.
