So I have tried searching through posts on whats recommended. Ive been considering an edge monitor or pillar guages. I'm not really sold on quad because of connectivity issues and not having another device besides my phone to use. I use phone for music and handsfree so bluetooth would be tied up anyway.

 

My questions with edge are; do they really monitor fuel pressure if so would it be before the injection pump where it matters? Also if it doesn't I'm assuming thats going to add to the price when you are already at 560 with monitor and EGT probe.

 

I was also looking into diesel manor guage sets because they seemed pretty comprehensive but reviews leave me hesitant.

 

SO what I'm really after are what do YOU use in your setup? How does it work for you? I also have not gone the tuning route yet because I don't feel like I have enough supporting mods to make that worthwhile yet which is why I have not considered tuning packages with monitors.

 

Thank you in advance!!

I use both, quadzilla and iss pro mechanical. Yes, you will need supporting mods before you can go crazy. Quad is the way to go for a vp44 once you get it all figured out. It seems to have less issues with android. Devices vs iso.

My first gauges were part of a Banks system I installed. All was fine until the tuner crapped out and I lost the gauges too. So I added stand alone FP, EGT, and Boost. I run a Comp now and need the gauges. Would like to go to a Quad in the future but will keep the gauges. The biggest draw back to Edge is bigger than stock injectors will get smokey and you dont have a way to tune the smoke out.

I like the classic look of pillar gauges. I’ve ordered all my gauges from diesel manor and they have taken excellent care of me over the years. If I still had a vp truck, I would go with a quadzilla and monitor but isspro EV2 are my stand alone gauges of choice.

Mine are the EV1's also. But since I had 4 I went a different route. They work well for me. Still have the FP gauge in the pillar mount.

They are much easier to see than in the picture.

The Quad and the others are ok for gauges but its hard to beat a quality gauge set. They tend to be more accurate than something that reads a factory sensor. I like them for back up gauges and recently my Quad alerted me to a dying MAP sensor.  I prefer Autometer and have the Cobalts in this truck. Easiest gauge i found to read day or night if that makes sense. 

 If you want an Isspro EV2 fuel pressure gauge i have one used i need to sell.

I get by with pillar Autometer gauges and without a Quad and make lots of reliable power.  I agree that the Quad is a better system...but it could also be more troublesome as well for those that aren't as savvy.  I went with the Smarty/TST Comp stack because of its simplicity and reliability and also because of its documented power potential.  I haven't ever had one problem with it having the stack for 7 years now...still on original VP44 too.

Four Isspro on the A post.  From top down: exhaust temp, trans temp, fuel pressure, manifold pressure.  I've had them since June of 2004 with no problems.

Down my a-pillar I've got boost 0-60 PSI, Fuel pressure 0-30 PSI and EGT's 0-1,600*F. Then Trans temp on the column. All gauges are ISSPro EV2 and programmed all the warning light for proper values. Boost gauge is set for 45 PSI. Fuel pressure is set for 13 PSI and the EGT's are set for 1,200*F. Then the Trans Temp is set for 220*F. No longer do you have to watch gauges I can tell by location of the warning light what to do without looking.

So do I. 

  • Bluetooth connection to my stereo / handfree
  • Bluetooth connection to my Quadzilla

Work great. The bluetooth connection now since I upgraded from LG G5 to Samsung S10 has greatly improved. Just a few hiccups but working better than my old LG G5 phone was. Handles handfree calls at the same time handling Quadzilla.
