EGT if possible (difficult to instal probe) ... and I'd like to see someone running an intake temperature gauge. Very pertinent information in the intake temperature. Tells you a lot about how your car will probably run. (Hot air means it will probably be more likely to pull ignition timing from detonation, and run less power.)

But if not that, perhaps a coolant temp gauge. (IMHO a coolant temp gauge makes an oil temp gauge superfluous except in extreme conditions since the oil is cooled by the coolant in an heat-exchanger.)

Also consider, voltmeter, amp meter, oil pressure, and wideband a/f gauges.

Dubbya~

Depends on where you are mounting the 3-pod.

If A-Pillar, get stuff that would be useful to know as you drive: add EGT and wideband a/f.

If dash, get meters that will help diagnose probs: add Oil Press and volts. BTW.. boost should go on A-Pillar, replace with fuel pressure.
