    Boost, EGT (and move the sender to where it's supposed to be), oil pressure, then move from there.

    Welcome to the site

    Gauges vary based on need. How many gauges do you intend to have? How modified will the vehicle be?

    I personally only really want a Boost Gauge because I don't intend on heavily modding my STI. I'd just like to know what I'm boosting at.

    Some say Oil Pressure isn't necessary because by the time you've lost oil pressure, a severe enough issue has already occurred.

    If you plan on doing a lot of tuning, EGT and a wideband AFR would be very good. A standard AFR gauge is virtually pointless, so don't waste your money on those as readings are inaccurate.

    Do a search for the "Gauge Mounting" thread and you will get some more good ideas on mounting options and all the different gauges out there.

    Also...stay away from ebay Glowshift gauges...they are garbage.
