Question gauges questions

ive done a lot of reading on this form and ive never seen this approached so im going to.for those guys using tuners on your trucks,these tuners monitor the stock pyros in the manifold and for you spartan guys the ones in the dpf/doc;so is there a need to add another pyro gauge on the a-pillar?i would think you could use that spot for something else.i know the h&s monitors the ones from the manifold and i think there is one after the turbo it monitors also (not sure on that one).so why tap your manifold for another one?instead you could have something like a diff or transfer temp gauge.just putting it out there to get some opinions,let me know what you think.

I vote flux capacitor meter. Anything under 1.21 jiggawatts and you're going to have problems. It's well documented.

I have an H&S mini, the unit has various items it monitors thru the OB port. I have mine set to monitor things that do not show up on the stock instrument panel:
Exahust temp
Percent Throttle ( I use this one to try to keep the mileage up)
Voltage ( Battery)
Inlet Air temp.... I would like to see Oil Pressure in this place)

cheers
