I have an Autometer with pillar mount that looks really clean and matches my other stock gauges. I posted a pic of it on here at some point. I'll see if I can find it.

Same thing but on the 6.0 paired with the 5R110 torqueshift it actually does not turn off overdrive. Just modifies the shift points and once it get's to a high enough speed it will still shift into overdrive. All it's doing is holding the trans shifting till it's higher in the RPMs. You might still see high EOT and ECT but the engine is actually running cooler. It doesn't make sense but it's a diesel

I know it sounds counter-intuitive but besides the tranny and excessive shifting when going up a steep grade it keeps the engine from lugging at low RPMs which also creates heat. EGTs will be lower because the engine load is lower due to the higher RPM.

I have autometer gages. One is a pyro and the other fuel pressure and I'm about to add a transmission temperature gage. The rest I watch with my ScanguageII. Always vigilant.

I am preventive maintenance type of guy as I dislike doing something twice. I replace before catastrophe happens.
Sorry, I spaced this. CAC Intercooler Boots:

3C3Z-6C640-BA $25.33
4C2Z-6C640-CA $41.04 hot side intake hose
4C2Z-6C640-BA $51.79
6C2Z-6C640-EA $89.98 cold side intake hose

I checked around and there are no aftermarket options from Riff Raff or Mishimoto. Prices are from Autonation Ford which is generally quite a bit cheaper than the dealership price.
X2 on the forum. Great resource and inspiration
