What gauges to get??

Hello to all.... My wife is getting me an A piller gauge pod for 3 gauges. I was wondering what gauges you guys think I should put in there. I am going to put a boost and exhaust temp gauge but I dont know what else i should keep an eye on. Thanks for all the help....

I think its pretty safe to say that that's what the majority of us are running. You can get a ton of different gauges, but those are the first ones to get.

There not too bad, takes a little work though. There are two good write-ups to reference too. Good Luck.
