Gauge Pods

Hi everyone,


my wife and i recently picked up a 2004 E-350 hi-top 4x4 that we are going to slowly build out into a camper. But first i wanted to get some gauges set up to monitor the engine.



i wanted to see if anyone has been able to put 2 gauges on the a-pillar without having to ditch the handle :https://www.autometer.com/2-1-16-dua...van-92-00.html *technically not made for my van



the only option i have found for my van is: https://www.autometer.com/2-1-16-sin...-e-series.html but i would like a second gauge there aswell allowing me to monitor boost and EGT



I'll be using the torgue pro app to monitor most other parameters

I too use the torque pro and took the easy route with this...

Check back with Auto Meter for this type overhead gauge pod: http://https://www.autometer.com/2-1...ram-03-05.html

That shows a triple pod, they're also made in a double and a quadruple (18016 & 18018). I have one of the triple's mounted now but only two gauges currently installed---deciding whether to add a third gauge or switch to a double pod.

The grab handles make placing something on either A-Pillar so this might be the next best location--it works for me. Photos available if they'd be helpful.

BTW I have one of the quad pods for sale if interested. Brand new, 50$ shipped most anywhere in the lower 48 states. Its a bit inconvenient though because if the visors are lowered the first and last gauges are somewhat obscured. Might not be an issue especially if one needs all four gauges.

HTH

Thanks for the replies guys, i think im going to just stick with the single a-pillar gauge for the pyro and then have my phone with torque pro app on the dash to the right of the steering wheel. Torque pro does have a extra PID for boost on fords so i will just use that in place of a real boost gauge, although im not 100% sure how accurate it is!

I do have a 3 gauge pod over the mirror. I probably would have not gone with multiple aftermarket gauges if I'd had purchased my DP NDASH before the Autometer gauges. But the large dials are much easier for my sight.
