At the very least, I would add an EGT, boost (if turboed) and probably a trans temp gauge. Good to know what those items are up to.

The gauges you install depends on a lot of things. Some people install a gauge for everything, while others won't understand the data they're seeing anyways and really don't care. I just picked up a pyro, boost, trans temp, tachometer cluster from a guy parting out his truck for 40 bucks. All isspro too. I might also get an engine oil temp gauge because that more accurately shows engine load then water temp. That and I like having gauges. Summit racing had a whole variety of sunpro gauges on clearance a week or two ago. Now granted, they're made in china but for 50 bucks you could pick up an entire gauge set. Not sure if they have any left though so you'll have to check.

Sounds like a nice rack of gauges...got any pix? And trying to find anything that WASN'T made in China is almost impossible these days. And if you do, they are usually impossibly priced.

No, no pics, not sure where the camera is at right now. The pyro is R604, tach is r5503, oil temp is r5654, and boost is r5613. No senders came with it though, so I'll have to buy them yet. Then I'll just have to put a turbo on the engine in order to use the boost gauge.
