    What do you guys think about workability for my 02 ex???
    I would just put the fuel level gauge in the third spot (i know it wouldn't match but it is better than the coulmn mount).

    Seems like they have not gotten very good reviews when I've seen them mentioned... The pod did not fit well, the gauges only last a couple months at a time - I think they sent out replacements, but...

    Come on, take a little of that fuel money yer savin' and just buy the GOOD stuff. :chuckles: Granted, I spent 4x that (on 4 gauges and a pod with paint) - but everybody who does not know these trucks asks if they are factory equipment, they will last forever and MOST important to me, are very easy to read, day and nite.

    (Ask Dave at diesel manor for the 'Sky Ski Jason' Dipricol Optix PSD package. )

    This is the Excursion's. I have same set-up in F350, but have HPO pressure in bottom hole instead!

          This is why I asked. I was not aware that these gauges are problematic. I was drawn to the 3 gauge pillar mount in the color that I wanted and went from there. So you are saying that the pillar mount is not a good fit either?

          How did you make up the switches for the V3 and purge.... or were they make for you??

          I have to be honest about the saving $$ thing. I have a ways to go before my system pays for itself. When that happens I can start to justify buying more toys and chalk it up to fuel savings. I was looking for an inexpensive set of gauges that were reliable if the two are possible.

          Sky-- I would love to have your setup but I think it may be a little out of my range.

          Anyone please chime in if you have ideas.

          Thanks

            I think I'd spring for a good set of Autometers if it were me. Used them before and they're hard to beat...good quality stuff.

              Old school T-5 for now(I am a old trucker,I NEED buttons and switches),I am looking into a setting to advance timing as that would create ideal combustion on WVO.I have the edge trail jammer in the wifes CRD and it runs better on WVO then #2 with that advaced timing setup.I am also looking to switch my shift points on the tranny thru a programmer(with current mods it is bearly loping under load,and shifts too early for my liking)............greasy

                Harrold, contact this guy and tell him i refered you. He writes custome tunes and just made me a vegi tune for the SCT programmer. He can burn you a turn for a DP tunner.
                his name is Tony Wildman...yes, he is a wild man

                  What's the vegi tune consist of? How's it different from a regular tune? I am looking to get a programmer soon, and I was going to go with either DP or Tony Wildman.

                  Also-does anybody have a link for a pressure gauge and sending unit? I'm just not exactly sure what I need...

                    Bio, have you checked the Autometer site?

                    http://www.autometer.com/

                    They've got a ton of options and all fuel pressure gauges should come with the necessary sending unit. Also, I'm not sure if DFA is carrying any gauges now, but you might check with Jason or James to see if they do - and maybe they can make you a good deal.

                    If no luck there, surf on over to Powerstroke.org - I know you can find a vendor that will help you out there.

                    I would think most any reputable gauge manufacturer would include all necessary parts you'd need with whatever gauge you're ordering. I will say though, you might need an elbow or another fitting to put in a fuel pressure sender on the V3.

                    Good luck!

                      You paint the pod to match your interior. Most 'kits' use Pro-Pods (pod mfg), but there are some cheapo's out there. The Pro-Pods are about $45 retail and come in many shapes - 2, 3 and 4 pod a-pillar - 3 and 4 pod over the rear view mirror, under cubby mounts, beside the stock gauges, etc...

                      The lites and switches are for a Frybrid controller - different than DFA V3 controls (not better by any means).

                      There are cheaper gauges than the DiPricols that would be reliable. Many like the ISSPRO's and I have installed a couple sets, very nice gauges and 3 gauge kits w/pod under $300 at vendor I use. The Autometers are fair, depending on the line - they have a selection that ranges from cheap to super-nice.
