Most of the products that work like you ask are tied to entry level power adders.
This is fine if all you want is 100 extra Hp.

If you are a demented diesel dude (like me) with aspirations of big Hp bite the bullet and add the ugly old pillar set. I am aware of nothing on the market that has the quality and durability of a simple gauge set. I have watched other guys with the "fancy looking display stuff" suffer continuous unit failures and software glitches.

The Smarty, MP8, and a small set of sticks will make more power than your old 12V did. Lots of heat too!

You need an egt gauge that you can bet your engine on. Especially with the stock turbo!

I like that commander and if geno's offers it, It's been tested! Now how about a mount like on the pillar or above the mirror??
