Engine Monitoring Systems

This doesn't pertain to MB's but it could. Anyone know of any good engine monitoring or management systems ? I'm in the process of putting a diesel engine in a Jeep YJ. Its an OM617 from 85 300D. I'm going to add a few more gauges to monitor things such as boost, exhuast gas temp, and oil temp. The problems seems to be where mount these gauges, which seems common with the Jeep YJ.

I got the idea to use a monitoring system like boats do. There's many of them out there. They allow things to be displayed on one lcd or led screen all at once or on seperate screens or display options. Theres sets up that use their own screens with side or buttons or even ones that are touch screens. Some allow you to even use a computer but there require windows to interface with the multiplexer.

I'm looking for one thats geared for automotive use and doesn't need a computer. It can either use its own screen or a regular lcd if it can display everything at once.
