Gauges installed!!!

First of all... Thank you very much Travis! You were a tremendous help, hell you did most of it for me. All I really did was fight the bowl, and I think it won!!!

Anyhow. I ordered the GlowShift Tinted 7 Color Gauges, and so far I am pleased. The installed was pretty easy, for the most part. I did have to trim off a couple notches in my OEM pillar to make room for the deep gauges, but that was a jiff with the dremel. I had an issue with the fuel bowl, the allen plug did not want to come loose, but I finally got it with a pair of channel locks. I had to fight to get the sender in, and when I finally did, i cracked the dang bowl. Thank god for JB weld, so I could get home. Surprisingly enough, it is holding. So if anybody has a fuel bowl assembly for a 2006 6.0, HAND IT OVER!!! Im looking for one quick status, might even overnight!

I shot a couple of picture, the night ones are blurry as hell becuase my camera wasnt cooperating, but you get the idea.

Re: Gauges installed!!!

I like the gauges. The work really well, from what I can tell. Im glad I went with the fuel pressure gauge, because I was able to monitor my fuel pressure when driving home after I cracked my bowl.

Also, 06powerstroke helped me do the high idle mod too... sweet... Ive already used it when I didnt need to... hahahahaha

Re: Gauges installed!!!

Those gauges look great at night! It was good to meet you and your family Bryant! I forgot to take you for a 4WD launch in my 6.0, lol. Those GS gauges are actually fairly nice. They seem well built, the only cheap part was the senders. For you guys on a budget I wouldn't be afraid to buy glowshift...

I can laugh at that now that Im home and safe, and I seem to have found a bowl. . Just so you know, Im getting ready to order the billet cap. Remember when I asked you if there was a benifit to having the cap versus the adapter? Now we know....

The gauges look great. My wife had me driving home last night with two of the blue, and one green. I guess she thought it was christmas tree or something. The quality seems nice. 06powerstroke has seen the ISSPRO and AM gauges, and he says these are decent for a budget. So I recommend too!

Thanks everybody for the compliments
