Looks like a good list to me, but I would also add the fuel pressure gauge as well.

I dont think the oil pressure gauge will work for you. I though autometer didnt make a HPO gauge

If you do the oil pressure you will have an engine oil pressure guage, not a HPOP pressure guage. I would leave off the volts, unless youre really worried about the charging system. Deiselsite sells a HPOP pressure guage. I would look intot hat one. its a different brand, but I think it would mesh in with the sport comps ok.

HPOP pressure is high pressure oil feeding your injectors to make them fire. roughly between 500-2800 psi.

your engine oil pressure is about 40 with crusing, 20 at idle. its what feed the oil to the engine, and to the HPOP resivior.

and the HPOP guage can be found at ITP diesel, I was mistaken when i told you earlier.

I have The Sport-Comp Ultra-Lites and tbh i would go with the Ultra-Lite II's. the sport comp ultralites are lite from a ring around the side and don't look bad, per se, but the back-lit ones look way better. Only thing is, the ultralite II's wont match the factory gauges. after having the sportcomp's for 8-10 months, I'm gonna sell em and get the ultra-lite II's. They aren't much more from where I get them.

EDIT: Scratch that, I have the Pro-Comp Ultra-Lite's, silver bezel silver face, green illumination via ring around the edge at night. Totally different gauge.

If the gauges you are looking at have the ring on the edge for illumination, I wouldn't get them. Backlit only for me from now on...
