Aftermarket Diesel Gauges

I'm looking to add a few gauges to my 6.7 Powerstroke so I can monitor a few things that I feel are important to normal engine operation. Does anyone have any experience or recommendations for any aftermarket gauges? Also, I saw one post recently about a computer plug in and Bluetooth data transmission to an iPhone app but I can't find it. Thanks!

The iPhone app is dash command. Several are available but it seems this is the most popular. If you look at the Android market look at Torque Pro. If you go this route read the description and make sure you get the correct OBDII adapter. Some are Bluetooth, some are WiFi. I use torque pro and recently cross loaded it onto my Kindle Fire HD. Gives you a lot of info without. running wires and a lot cheaper. This is the info your computer uses to operate your engine. These are the numbers that count.

I have a set of factory match isspro gauges in my truck. I really like them and they have been very reliable and relatively easy to install.

I went with ScanGaugeII. Very compact and displays the parameters I need. There's no graphics, just the numbers I want to monitor.

How much did this setup run you roughly? This is what I would like to have but I'm not sure if I want to drop the cash today for it. Did you install yourself? Do you just wire it into the dash computer or is it involved?

I was reading about the ScanGauge and I am interested. Will it show Exhaust Gas Temp and Fuel Pressure?

Thanks...I think is the route I am going to go for now. I'll pick up one of those OBDII gizmos from the link below and give it a whirl.

On the sheet I have for the 6.7L, it shows that it does have Exhaust Gas Temp, but nothing about Fuel Pressure.

You could check with ScanGauge to see that is still true. I printed my sheet in October '14. As I understand it, when they find and decode sensors, codes are added on-line for the customers to update their units.

I went with 2 gauges on the pillar. boost and egt. If I was doing it again I would add rear diff temp to the mix (I have a factory installed trans temp gauge)
