I need advice here guys....I am torn between a standard 3 gauge pillar setup or the new MSD Dashhawk with EGT Probe. I was thinking the Sport Comp or new GS series Auto Meter gauges so the price when it is all said and done will be about the same. The concern I have is ACCURACY! Would the Dashhawk offer the same accuracy as the regular gauges? The other benefit of the MSD setup is the Fuel Mileage display since I don't have the factory Ford setup.

Thoughts and suggestions please.

Bumping this up for ya. :bump::bump::bump:

I personally went with the Quadzilla setup. Haven't heard of the dashhawk?

personally i'd say do the Insight, it's a much nicer set up than the Commander, i was talking to a guy last night at the truck that said he was talked into the commander and how he wants to throw it in the garbage, we were talking about how the insight has a much nicer display and it's the same as the Attitude which there are very few problems with. he was having problems w/ the buttons not working, the water temp is all over the place and this is the second one he's gotten.

on a side note be careful where you get the Insight from b/c the Edge MVP policy applies to that as well.

Edge Products INSIGHT Multi-Gauge Display #83400 - EP83400

go with the insight I just bought one and it is very nice I have heard bad things about the commander but nothing but good with the insight and you can customize it to just about what ever you want with about 100 diff peramiters to watch it is also neat to have the instant MPG thing also I agree

Like Kyle said, Edge has been making the Attitude for years, and they work great. We have sold lots of Insights with no problems. We have sold more Commanders, only because they have been out longer. Yes they have had issues, but Quadzilla always takes care of it. Either way you need to monitor whats going on with your truck. Analog gauges are good, but they take up too much room. just my opinion.

and the install in the insight vs analog is night and day you are looking at maybe a 1/2 an hour vs all day with the analog I already had my manafold drilled from my attitude that I used to have so it only took me 10 min

oh yea the other thing is you won'r be able to read EGT's w/ the Dashhawk. As for the insight being accurate the only thing that will be a little off is the boost reading, b/c it's reading through the map sensor and not directly from the manifold.

Analog looks cooler IMO...
