what 3 guages?

Im wanting to do the 650 manual lower dash piece and im wanting to add another 2 or 3 gauges in it.

I have boost, trans, pyro, and air psi for my horns on the pillar already.

What would be 3 very handy gauges to have?

Im thinking:

oil temp, Fuel Pres, HPOP

or

Oil Temp, Fuel Pres, Scan gauge

Give me your opinions.
Thanks.

Scan gauge can display oil temp and anything else the pcm views. you can add on other sensors for fuel psi.

Re: what 3 guages?

With the 7.3, is it the same as a 6.0 as far as the 15 degree difference between eot and ect? If so, oil temp, coolant temp, and fuel pressure.

Try Kenny at KEM Performance (vender on here for pricing).

Re: what 3 guages?

I really like the scan gauge bc of what all it does. If i get the scan gauge, ill add it to my pillar pod and move the air psi down to the 650 dash.

Re: what 3 guages?

If you go with a scan gauge then go scan gauge, water temp and fuel pressure...

The PCM can not see fuel pressure or water temp so...

Without the scan gauge I would go oil temp, water temp and fuel pressure.

oil pressure is another one the factory PCM can not see, so you can think of that one as well...

The HPO gauge is a neat toy, but day to day, not needed.

Scan gauge as one HANDS DOWN. You will LOVE it. They have so many functions it def makes it a worthwhile gauge.
