oil pressure, voltage, and coolant temp are the norm, if you really like gauges you can get an oil temp, vacuum, and fuel pressure

So far, i have a/f, volt, oil temp and boost.... i am thinking about getting rid of the voltage gauge and getting an oil pressure and egt? That egt gauge is spendy... is it even worth it? I am boosted and will be running 300whp VERY VERY soon...

mechanical oil pressure guages are more accurate... lol they are both easy to hook up

well if you use the copper tubing, it wont burst like the cheap plastic ones... you cant even get pass tech with a plastic one if they see it

edit. mine has been working for over a year

Where can you get copper tubing for these at? I have one, not installed yet but its got the plastic tubing, definately would rather have something a little more solid!

Tunerview 2, enough said. If I was to do it all over again I would go with the tunerview 2. But I got boost, oil pressure, and water temp gauges. Wideband is also on the list to get.

Oil pressure, temp, boost/vac. That's all the "necessary" ones as far as I'm concerned. Oh, and depending on how big your VTAK hit is, you might need a mega-monster uber-blingtastic tach w/atomic-powered shift light set to 10,000RPM.
