you got options

you can get that edge insight that monitiors all your parameters with custom backrounds. I think its like 400 $ or so or and i think you can choose your efi live tunes from it as well which is the route I should have gone. spend the same on a set of pillar gauges and pod. If your mechanically inclined you can install them yourself and save alot of money just know how to use a tap to thread the manifold 1/8 npt i believe.I have a cobalt boost gauge I bought on ebay for like 40 bucks and bought my pyrometer from prosport gauges it flashes red and beeps when my temp hits my preset levelName:  002.jpg

I've had/have them all... I have a CTS and I have actual gauges.. I've had a dual pod and triple pod now.. My suggestion will be based off of your needs..

If you are just running a mild tune, etc.. get an Autometer EGT and Boost gauge in a dual pod and be done with it..
If you are one of those guys who wants to know the temp of your air intake, etc.. mostly stuff that most don't care about, get the Edge unit and monitor it all..
Keep in mind if you get a triple pillar setup.. I can almost guarantee you will crack your head/face off them all the time, and your sun visor turns into a PITA.
