KN Actually I started with ISS and was disappointed they did not have a deal set up that has it all. What I found was it's all ala cart making it a challenge to get it all correct. For example the EGT gauge did not come with sensor and the sensor had many options.
Maybe I missed it. Do they have a 3 gauge deal like the SW I posted that's 100%^ complete?
I picked up 3 ISSPRO Gauges, complete with all sensors.
R82133 Turbo Boost $192.11 / <List My Cost>$144.00
R82588 Coolant $128.46 /<List My Cost> $96.34
R82000 ESP (controller) $396 /<List My Cost> $250
R82021 Pyrometer 0-1600° F My Cost> $76.71
3 Gauge Pillar Pod Mount FREE
As I understand it, some shops do sell the Gauges A la Cart Style to keep the cost down and make you think your getting a deal, but as you said you end up paying for the sensors too. The expensive part is the ESP Controller, but you can run up to 17 gauges from it.
Also with ISSPRO gauges, you get a memory feature so you can tell at the push of a button, the highest values your sensors have recorded. (A seperate switch needs to be purchased)
and you also have the ability to match your current illumination brightness.
Plus, you can pull one gauge out, move it to another pod position and it will still work, or you can switch the gauge with another one and not have to do any additional wiring into the cab. (You still need to wire any sensor needed, to the ESP Controller that mounts under your hood)
I got mine from Greg at http://www.neweradiesel.com
Another good place to try for gauges is http://www.kensperformancesolutions.com
they have a nice 3 gauge set up with a Tee fitting and instructions and at your door for around $300.00 but I do not know the brand of the gauges.
I began installing my gauges today, I might be finished by this weekend!
I'd also if I were to do it again I'd get the clamp on type sensor for the Pyro
instead of the weld in one if I purchased ISSPRO Gauges but most likely I wouldn't purchase ISSPRO if I knew the amount of "knuckle grease" I'd be spending installing them.
