    I was wondering if you thought this was a good deal or not? Do you reccomomend this set up? i think its really the only place to put gauges because i dont want to put it in place of the clock...

    also...i wanted to know what you think i should put for gauges....if you think i should get four thats cool but i really want to go with three like follows: Boost Gauge, Air/Fuel Gauge, and a transmission temp (this is questionable...i dont know what i want to do for this)

    Look for the dual gauge pod which replaces the stock bezel. Or, if you like this triple pod - get it. As for the Gauges themselves, you get what you pay for in most instances, and gloshift are cheap. Still, they might be ok. Personally, I only recommend GReddy as it's what I've used. I've had Autometer gauges in past cars (Phantom Series) and they have not been accurate, and in one case one didn't work at all. There's a level of quality control that I just don't feel is there. But I digress.

    For gauges to use... Boost/vac, EGT, Oil Temp. If you are going to go for a Air/Fuel gauge - you need a Wideband O2 sensor or it won't be very useful. Wideband sensors typically cost more than that entire setup you are looking at.

    I would exactly get Oil Pressure instead of Oil Temp. Also, I'm not convinced that an EGT gauge is necessary unless you're data logging and doing your own tuning.
    I have Autometer Boost/Vac and Oil Pressure and they have served me well for over 4 years.
    I also have an Autometer clock.
