Need some advise. Have a guy wanting to sell me a PLX dual gauge setup with wideband, boost and obd2 modules for 375. Would this be a good combination for my L setup? It's a lot of cheese and I'm a little cautious.

I already have a boost gauge and am looking at buying a wideband and Fuel pressure gauge. Have a 2 pod pillar and thinking another column pod for a total of 3 gauges.

I like the versatility of the plx system and could sell the boost gauge if need be.

What would y'all do?

Edit: 1- plx dm-6 and 1- dm-100

Do they come with gears? Its not very clear. Rpm range is ideal for you.

That's just their site showing the cams,I'll find them from a site selling them and hopefully they'll be more detailed. A couple pages back someone posted a list of stuff you need for cams,does anyone make an install kit like they do for gears?

You dont need an install kit. If you are just getting bare heads then you'll need new cam sprockets too. Just get stock ones. Bolt them on when you install the cams. You will need ARP cam bolts too. You should have 10mm cam bolts but i would double check that.

Pick those up from modmaxracing. Usually about $75-100 cheaper than other retailers
