Why is it that everyone says to use sct or scan guage vs actual guages? Im coming from a chevy and my dash guages actually are guages is there a way to make the fords the same?

Not really. The need on these trucks for a more, call it versatile gauge set is because there are so many more parameters that need to be monitored. With my gauge setup I am able to monitor 9 parameters at once all simultaneously viewable. I monitor, EGT, ECT, EOT, boost, fuel pressure(waiting for sensor setup), FICM voltage, trans temp, VGT % and cooling fan speed. I can do this for a bit more than a 4 pod gauge setup with quality gauges. So in any case, even if I had analog gauges I would still need to buy more. Do I necessarily need to monitor all of these params. No but I have the flexability to do so. The dash factory gauges are little more than idiot lights and more parameters need to measured.
