    I just did the search also, that probe would plug into a wire harness. His truck may or may not have the needed wiring harness.

    But the gauge appears to be an actual smart gauge by the look of the back of it.

    If that's the case then that means the gauge would be controlled by the CECU.

    I'd suggest they hold off until they check an make sure their CECU will even support a pyrometer.

    If the CECU will support one, then the only issue will be the wiring under the hood to get the signal into the cab and into the CECU, and that's something I can help with.

    If the CECU won't support the gauge, the it might be a loss. I have the ESA software but I don't have the adapter so I've yet to play with it and see what it can actually configure in the CECU.

    Ive got buddies that work at ISSPRO so I sent them one of my factory gauges out of my 2018 pete and had them build me a 2000 degree pyro for my truck. Only difference from the factory gauge is the chrome bezel is wider on the ISSPRO gauge. Everything else matches. They build a lot of gauges for OEM’s so theres a good chance they can match it. And before anyone asks I went with a 2000* gauge cause I installed the probe in the manifold before the turbo and as with most gauges they are most accurate in the middle of their range, that and manifold temps can easily reach 1300*+.

    Apparently, if you take enough pills, you can hear the temperature of each cylinder climb one degree at a time......

    The Sensor Connection EGT Probes Motorsports Sensors and Gauges

    This will let you monitor up to 12 probes.
    I have the single probe analog version now. The highest it's ever gotten was about 1150° and that was when my turbo actuator failed and I was over fueling my cylinders.

    Normally it runs about 700° unless it's doing a regen, then it pretty much lives at 900°
