    Looking to pick up some Gauges

    Just bought my car and am looking to go to stage 2 early next spring but I want to make sure I have some gauges to keep an eye on everything. The car already has a boost gauge right at the bottom of the a-pillar towards the back of the dashboard. So I figured I would just get a 3 gauge pod to replace the clock and throw a different gauge in place of boost. I'm just having trouble picking out which one to get and what kind of range the gauge needs to account for in terms of temp or psi for instance.

    Basically I'm looking for an EGT and oil pressure. It's the 3rd I'm not sure on. I was thinking fuel pressure, oil temp or maybe something simple like volts just to fill the space up. But I'm also not sure what the max psi or oil temp of those gauges should be, I don't want to get something that doesn't go high enough. Any advice or recommendations would be appreciated.

    I don't know why you wouldn't want a boost gauge. If I were to pick only one gauge, I'd pick boost.

    Darrell, what would be the three gauges you would pick/have. I was thinking of getting boost, EGT, and air/fuel, but i've heard air/fuel is basically useless if you don't get a wideband sensor and gauge.

    I love the megan guages.They actually replaced my autometer ones.My autometer EGT died after 7months...lame!!!

    The Autometer boost guage is actually 1 lb psi short.when it says I m at 17lbs ,it's really 18lbs.

    Even though the megan are 2 1/16 ,the surface area is bigger unlike the Autometer with the big thick ring around the face,so the megans actually look bigger than they really are.They also "feel" like a quality guage.Very pleased. The cool guage sweep at start up was a pleasant surprise also.

    Yeah they are getting the WRX-look ones in January, which I will probably get. $300 for all 3 gauges... that's awesome.
