Dumb question maybe but need help with EGT
Hello, I don't know anything about this stuff but I found this form while searching for alternatives to traditional gauges for the 2000 ford excursion 7.3L diesel I just bought. The problem is that there isn't a stock EGT sensor. I am wondering if there is a way to hack/rig an EGT sensor to report through the OBDII port so I can use a $20 type k thermocouple, cheap wireless ELM327 and a $5 DashCommand app on my iPhone to have a full set of gauges. The only solution I've found available is the PLX products, but that doesn't provide any cost savings over traditional pillar gauges and I'm wondering if there's some sneaky way to do the same thing and avoid paying for expensive hardware. Any help is appreciated.
