There is ABSOLUTELY ZERO need to "install" an EGT gauge/sensor. ALL the data is already there.

Yup, you read that right. There is ALREADY an EGT sensor. It's in the RH manifold-to-turbo pipe as I recall.

All you need to monitor ANY trans or engine sensor (TFT, ECT, EGT, etc) is this: http://www.scangauge.com/products/

Since nothing changed in terms of OBD-II compliance (CAN protocols etc) from before, I'm sure it will.

Best to ask them before you order.
