Guage Help Needed

Ok I have looked at literally 100's of threads on guages. I already picked up a color matched 3 guage pod for my 2005 F350. From what I can gather I need to get guages for Trans Temp, Boost, and EGT. I have the XLT package with the black guages panel, so I want guages that match that good. Would love to see pics of your setups to see how they look.

Re: Guage Help Needed

pics would be cool...really just curious what everyone is running and if they like them or not. Also wouldnt mind hearing what guages to stay away from.

Re: Guage Help Needed

i have nexus gauges and they are amazing, all electronic and spot on not to mention the recording and playback.

but fwiw i wouldnt worry about boost if your only doing 3, your factory gauge is pretty accurate,instead worry about a very important fuel pressure gauge. my .02
