Just wondering how much it would cost to get, EGT, Turbo boost, and what other gauge should I get? Trans temp or Pyro?

Its for performance wise not pulling.

Ha no, not a serial killer... I'm in Missouri city on the southwest side. I did my autometers with the boost and pyro... I've got a standard so I don't have trans temp so I haven't dealt with that. I'll send you a message with my number.

I don't really too often... Lol I have actually never driven up there myself. The gauges I want, the website offers a complete installation guide, not pics but a guide. Its Glowshift. I am probably gonna get them here in the next month well I want to, just have someone nagging in my ear about how I need to save money incase something breaks. Lol...

80 Cummins, I am in league city/kemah

If you have any mechanical knowledge and a couple friends with similar or better automotive levels, do it yourself and save the money for something else.

edit, VERY slow response on my part, $100 isn't a bad price if you don't have local friends willing to help out on the install.

I am all for people paying to have stuff done, but on the other side of the fence, your mechanical knowledge will never increase without you taking the time to do it yourself....especially when it comes with destruction paperwork to hold your hand. Good luck, not trying to be mean, just stating.

:thumbsup::agree2: When you got people willing to teach you stuff you better learn/watch/help while you can..I never thought I would put a set of injectors in a diesel truck but with a little help from you guys and some write ups on here it was cake..One thing I wont do is my trans :hehe:

You say that now wvcummer... But when me and my buddy installed mine it wasn't that bad at all.. Came together pretty nicely with few problems that were an easy fix.

To the OP.. I had my pyro, boost, trans done for around $400. I will NEVER let someone screw me like that again.. I would rather take 10hrs to get it done right than spend that much money. But I will say they look great and no problems out of them. :)
I plan on doin my fuel and rail by myself tho.
