What gauges to use

I am purchasing a new ETEC 150 V6 that will be rigged on a new center console. This rig will be replacing a 2013 model ETEC 130 on a similarily sized center console. The old motor came with ICON gauges but the dealer I am purchasing the new engine from is pushing a systemcheck tachometer and other systemcheckgauges. If I stay with the dealer's recommendation I will lose hours, mpg, trip information, fuel readings, and several other parameters, Is there some benefit to the systemcheck gauges I am not familiar with? What do others do to retain the more detailed performance information?

 

Thanks

Re: What gauges to use

First of all we need the complete model number of your new motor as that is the only way to determine which engine you have as there are a number of 150hp E-TECs.

Your new engine will hookup to your existing network and gauges if you want. It is basically plug and play using the engine to network cable from your old 130hp.  

 

The SystemCheck gauges would work also but they are just basic analog gauges that have been around since 1996.
