Hey all - new around here but not new to turbochargers
My mother found this nice 1995 Suburban 2500 6.5 TD 4x4 on Craigslist and so we went to see it and subsequently purchased it. It's getting front brakes for state inspection and the A/C fixed all by the seller, and then its ours.
I have a very modified BMW and am familiar with boost gauge, EGT, AFR, etc. I would like to put a boost gauge, trans temperature gauge, and later an EGT gauge in this truck. Its a '95 6.5 TD that runs well with 110k miles, but I want to see what kind of boost its making and the trans temp, and so on.
Where can I get the appropriate gauge holder? I am thinking an A-pillar gauge holder would be best. I will not be the primary driver of this vehicle - my mother will be (she's into cars/trucks too) and so I will show her what to look for. I know where to source the gauges and their senders/vacuum lines, etc., but what about the pod?
I also want to relocate the PMD - I am thinking of just splicing the wiring myself (very mechanically/electrically inclined) and locating it somewhere where heat won't affect it.
Anyway - hello all, this is our first diesel and should hopefully be fun to learn on!
and here is what it might pull:
