    What 3 gauges should I get?

    I'm getting a dash gauge pod and need to fill the 3 holes. I'm getting
    a Vac/Boost gauge and will probally get the EGT. For the 3rd should I get Oil temp or Oil pressure.

    Or should I get something other than EGT.
    I would like to know what most of you have, and what are the more inportant things to monitor.

    Thanks,
    Matt

    I would go like your saying and do the oil pressure as your third.

    water temperature is a crucial one as well.

    the factory water temp doesn't give you an actual temp.

    You should definitely due your research before asking these questions, EGT is a must if you plan on modding, and boost,. Its up to you. A/F is a goodone.
    You should check out this thread.

    I have a TBE, and will be getting a new turbo. The above thread only says that EGT and boost are a must. I have really already decided on those 2, but would like to know some opions as to what the 3rd gauge should be.

    As I recall, EGT is an indicator for running rich or lean. Is this coreect.

    What are the benefits on monitoring oil temp and oil pressure.
