If you're only going to be running A pillar gauges and nothing like the Edge CS or CTS I would highly recommend the following gauges in order of importance (4 pod required for these):

ECT
EOT
EGT
Fuel Pressure

The dash boost gauge works just fine, it's the others on the dash that are a complete waste of space.

Personally, I'd recommend getting a Scangauge II or a CS / CTS to compliment the A-Pillar gauges. But that's just me... I like to have all of my readings in one centralized location, makes it very easy to glance over and have everything right there.

If you want to stick with the A-Pillars I'd probably get a pod for above the rear view mirror too and add

Tranny Temp
Voltage
Boost

hey guys,
thanks for the comments and acidsniper Thanks for the info. i already have a EOT and EGT that is mounted under the dash. and my stock boost gauge isnt big enough anymore for the boost i make. i make roughly 45psi on a ATS 4000 turbo. And currently i have a superchip programmer for my truck. i plan on goign with the cts but as of right now the superchip does fine. i just want to be able to monitor everything since i have bigger injectors and more boost.

If I were you, I'd move that EOT gauge NEXT to the ECT gauge. I've got a quad pillar:

ECT
EOT
Trans
Fuel Pressure

I've got an EGT on the column.

But you'll definitely want the EOT and ECT together.
