7.3L cargo van

365,000 miles and all stock. Came with stock dash and gauges and my question is what two gauges are a must have? EGT, boost ? What if any others would you recommend?
Also had a surge and the computer showed a bad or going bad TPS which is one complete assy including the pedal. The ship changed it out for a new one but said it's running way worse. Anyone ever experience this problem?
Thanks

Oddly enough, in my opinion, the TPS does't show to any computer, so I don't know how you could have registered a default...
The accepted way to recognize if your having a TPS problem, is to take it out and put it in cruise control, and see if it DOES NOT happen, because the computer over-rides the TPS ...
The other way is to simply replace it, and see what happens....
Which you did....
I think you've got other problems
Somebody will likely chime in
Good Luck

Thanks but the shop that has it works exclusively on diesel pu and vans. They said they connected it to a laptop and read the parameters which were off. That's all I know!

The TPS is basically a potentiometer....
You don't and """CAN'T"" check it with a computer...
ONLY an OMETER....to check voltage across it at the connections

Pull the wires at the clip, and do the test, to see for yourself...

Ok stopped in and questioned the testing procedures and they assure me that YES they CAN test the pedal assembly via the computer using an IDS PROGRAM!
After installing new assembly/sensor the voltage read like 17 at idle and should've been zero. At full throttle it should've read 100 and it was like 67.
Any ideas anyone?
