Gauges in an 08??

Ok so I have the spartan with dashdaq in my truck and I don't like digital gauges at all so i'm looking to put mechanical gauges in. My question is what gauges do I need. I know I need EGT and boost but what would I put in the other 1 or 2 holes. (I'm getting either a 3 or 4 gauge pod.) The ones i'm considering are fuel pressure, fuel rail pressure, oil temp, or coolant temp. So lets hear some input on this.

I like the Manifold Gauge Pressure, Coolant Temp, FRP and EGT if it were me.

im going to add to your question a little cause i have a question about this as well if ya dont mind.....so the dash daq and black maxx monitor egt but they say its about 100* off from a pyro in the manifold.my question is which way is the 100*,is it lower or higher than actual?if its higher i dont really need a pyro in my manifold because the display will show it higher than it actually is and i can back off early.

You are right. They don't make a 4pod for the 08+ trucks. I'm not sure exactly what I was thinking.
