    what do u think the best gauges are for your car?
    im going to get the factory boost gauge on the steering wheels
    and the 3 pod gauge that replaces the clock, and i was wondering what gauges i should go with.
    the gauges that i want in the pods are
    OIL PRESSURE
    EXHAUST TEMP.
    AND AIR/FUEL RATIO

    Dob't get the factory gauge. Get the factory gauge pod and install an Omori meter 45mm gauge that reads in a useful unit like psi instead of fractions of a camels hump like the stock one does.

    I bought an Omori 45mm boost gauge and a column pod from www.j-spectuning.com for $135.

    The stock pod is pretty expensive so look to spend 1.5x that with the stock rubber pod.

    As for the other 3 gauges you should get, I'd go with a Pyrometer gauge, IC temp gauge, and either oil pressure or Wide band O2 (not regular o2 as they are worthless).

    yes you can buy an omori meter 45mm gauge that fits in the stock pod and reads in psi. Click the link above in this thread.

    Pyrometer is exhaust temp.

    If it were me I'd get the 45mm omori and get prosport gauges for the 3 in the pod.

    I'd get an Intercooler temp gauge. Its pretty useful.

    Chech into my autometer dual gauge bezel. It's of the chain. Doesn't block any thing and looks better than stock.

    Order of importance.

    Boost
    Egt
    A/F
    Air intake temps
    Oil preasure
