    If money is no object, try DEFI BF Series.

    wouldn't an a/f gauge be pointless unless it was a wideband?

    This is a stupid question but would an oil pressure gauge tell u when u car is properly warmed up(has oil pressure in the engine) to drive.

    Intake temp (just before thr throttle body)
    Exhaust temp
    Boost (in PSI)

    Omori guages match the Rex guages perfectly, but they're not cheap.

    A high intake temp would mean hot under hood temps? Stupid, and maybe obvious question. plz dont make fun and just say yes or no.

    Intake DOWNSTREAM of the intercooler will tell you how much the intercooler is heatsoaked. This is diferent from just knowing underhood temp, especially if you are drag racing. A hot engine bay with an ice packed intercooler can yield relatively cool intake temps.

    Yeah, I meant reading from a decent wideband. I just have a plx unit mounted to my steering column. Works fine. It could be prettier, but I don't care.
