EGT, boost and trans temp are the most common,

Fuel pressure, hpop press, oil temp, coolant temp....... these are all useful, not needed though.

I'd suggest going with EGT (for sure), boost, and trans temp if it's an auto trans, if it's a manual then replace that with fuel press.

the most important gauges on a 6.0 would be Fuel Pressure, water temp, oil temp and a pyrometer.

Gauges are expensive, if you aren't looking to break the bank with analog gauges, you might be interested in an Edge Insight, its an all in one Digital Gauge setup, only thing it wont monitor is fuel pressure, since it can not be read thru the OBDII port.

Here is one installed in a customers truck



Here is some more info on what its capable of: Edge Products: Product

to duplicate what this thing is capable of, you could spend $1500.00 on analog gauges. I have both in my personal truck and the digital gauges are typically withing 2-3* of the analog gauges. If you would like some prices, I would be more then happy to get some for you.
