Duke brought this up in a earlier disscusion and so since no one replied I talked to them today and found out that this gauge is really of no use to our trucks since it will not read EGT'S, BOOST, OR TRANNY TEMPS.

If some one finds one that will do theese things please tell.

Well it *can* read any OBD-II data, and it does "CAN" protocols, so the capeability is there, they may not have written the interface for EGT and TFT, but it will see that data.

It does see and display "Boost" but only in terms of "manifold pressure".
