|Thom429||More details- I was looking for a stock truck, the closest I found was this- a 97, built automatic, 5inch exhaust, aFe intake, and AFC live. No EGT gauge. I want reliability, mpg, and to be able to tow safely|

You can certainly over temp a '97 with stock injectors. If nothing else, EGT, boost and fuel pressure gauges aid immensely in troubleshooting.
I question why someone would buy an AFC live for an otherwise stock engine.

You don't really need an egt gauge on a 94 or 95 truck on stock Injectors unless you drive like a complete idiot.
Keep the smoke down, don't lug and stay away from trailers and you will probably be fine.
Egt gauges are always a good idea though.

|9297oldram||Anytime your adding extra fuel and don't know how to control your right foot it's good to have a EGT gauge. As far as any harm to the engine now probably not or you'd be able to notice it.|

AFC live on stock engine
Looking at a truck with afc live, curious as to whether I would need an EGT gauge as it is currently stock with the only mod being the afc live and no EGT. Could this have caused any issues?
