    If you aren't going to get a Wide Band O2 gauge\sensor, then get Oil pressure. Oil is very important, and if you're engine isn't spitting enough to the right parts of the engine you can get in to trouble very quickly. Monitoring that essential to monitoring engine health.

    What three gauges? This is generally the #1 gauge question due to the popular A pillar gauge pod or the factory clock gauge pod that hold three gauges. The correct answer is there is no correct answer, but the most popularly used gauges are: Boost, Exhaust Gas Temperature (EGT), and Oil Pressure.

    Once you buy some EM you'll see the point. With the AP or opensource the wideband is a mandatory and invaluable tool.

    If you live in a hot climate an IC temp gauge is helpful. You don't need a front mount, you can install on your top mount.

    Arrow Exhaust Gauge, and Air Fuel Gauge,

    I am installing three gauges on my 06 WRX a Turbo Boost Gauge, Exhaust Temperature Gauge, and Air/Fuel Gauge.
    I am wondering where is the best place to drill the hole in my exhaust for the monitior.I have a Skunk 2 exhuast installed from the cat back. I also have heard that 06 WRXs have an exhaust temperature monitorin system on them already just no gauge for it. Can I try and hook my gauge up to that or do I have to drill a new hole? Advice on location please!!!

    Too, my Air/Fuel gauge requires an 0xygen2 sensor. The technical support for where I purchased my gauges said I need a narrow band O2 senor for in my exhaust. However I went to several auto shops and they don't even sell or make the narrow band for the WRXs. Do I need a wideband or what? where is the best place to install this? i have the gauges in my car already. The electrical is on, so they light up, but the gauges aren't hooked up yet.
