Re: What gauges
Agreed with Sbluke55. The CTS2 comp kit (which I have) is the way to go. I have an actual boost sensor ported into the Y, fuel pressure, and EGT
plus everything else the PCM
monitors. I have 9 different PIDs displayed on the screen at one time and all are very easy to read and change/customize. I put the adapted pod that mounts on top of the dash and it does not block any field of vision and blends in (the pod is color matched). So much better than having gauges scattered all over between a pillar, steering column, above rear-view mirror, under cup holder, etc.
One spot. Everything I need. Easy. A little expensive, but not when you start adding 4-6 mechanical gauges and associated pods and wiring. Mine has one cord to the screen and then the easy daisy chain style hookups for EGT
, Boost, and Fuel Pressure (these just plug into each other; no real "wiring").
