    Hello all... Got a gauge question for ya

    I have an 06 limited wrx and am about to dump some money into it. One of my real good friends is the svc mgr at my local suby dealer. He suggested that if i want a few gauges to go ahead and get them now so he can adjust them with then new parts. Im pretty much gonna replace the intake with the spt version and exhaust all the way back. Afetr that im gonna get a cobb chip.
    My question is since I already have the stock boost gauge and a 3 gauge pillar pod... what would be the best 3 gauges to get and brand. I was thinkin the new blitz blm gauges or the defi blue racers. But I need to gauges besides the boost and oil pressure cuz i know those are pretty essential.
    So help me out.... which 2 gauges should I get as well as brand?

    Thanx

    "Exhaust Temp" crucial on turbos

    Also look at oil Temp gauge.

    Why get 2 boost gauges?

    Replace the stock one with a 45mm Omori meter that reads in PSI into the stock pod. Then you can get 3 extra.

    Or autometer makes a Bezel pod that replaces the trim around the factory gauges and adds 2 holes for gauges.

    Im not an A pillar fan. I have had them in passed cars and they are a PITA.
