    I found this site
    http://www.egauges.com/eg_typeI.asp?Type=Pyrometer
    but didn't know if there was a better place to order from.
    I've used autometer in the past, what other brands are quality instruments?

    Ispro makes the best pyro I have used...... If you put one in your truck put it in post, not pre turbo. If you do opt for pre turbo make sure you take the exhaust manifold off before you drill to recover all of the shaving or you will destroy the turbo.

    You can go to a semi truck salvage and get one from a freightliner or a KW and they are the 2 inch gauges. If you get one from a peterbilt they are the larger speedo sized gauges. You should be able to get the gauge and pigtail all the way to the turbo for next to nothing..

    I have an Autometer pro-comp 2 5/8" guage in my truck. Kind of pricey, but I really like it. Got it from Summit racing.

    Isspro makes a nice one. Color coded temp ranges and nice lighting. I'd go pre-turbo though. That's the info you really want. Otherwise, you'll be constantly doing math in your head. This place has a good reputation and decent prices.
