Guage suggestions

I'm considering a CTS to monitor most of the engine parameters, but I have a two guage pod that I cut a hole in my dash for... it has boost and egt in it now. I am thinkin a fuel guage and something else....

Any suggestions?

Re: Guage suggestions

Cts is def a good move. Have one and love it. Fuel pressure is probably one of THE most important gauges you can have. You can monitor just about everything else with a cts. Expansion will get you egt as well. Or go FP and EGT on some analogs. Just my .02

You can monitor up to 8 different PID's on the CTS, that would cover everything you want to monitor without adding extra gauges.

I know what you mean. I use the analog screen. Watch EOT,ECT,FICM V,ICP, and gear w/tcc locked/ unlocked. I wouldn't want to take up space with anymore to get a black screen and square boxes.

Re: Guage suggestions

I like the analog the best also the 8 pid is too small for me I actually wish they would lose the power level for non programmer models and add another pid there for the analog display
