Gauges, what should I get?

Coming from a manual 1999 SD 7.3 Powerstroke the only gauges I have are: Isspro EV2 - EGT & Boost.
For this new truck I will be sticking with the same brand, Isspro.

I would like to add 3 more gauges to my collection, making a total of 5 gauges.

The first gauge I will be adding is obvious,
1.) Tranny Temp (100-280F?)

What about the remaining 2 gauges?:
2.) ??
3.) ??

I was thinking two of the following gauges:
ECT, Fuel Pressure, EOT, Oil Pressure, or Rear Axle Temp

P.S. Currently my engine coolant gauge in the dash, does not work.

I think Fuel Pressure would be a good idea too!
Especially if I do the E-fuel conversion.

That is pretty cool.
I can even add additional sensors. (Oil Temp, Oil Pressure, ect. ect.)

How well will this gauge match the EV2's?

I didn't even see that lol. Usually that is the first thing I look at.

It's a pretty neat little gauge. Can't beat having a single gauge cycle through 8 different inputs for not much more than the price of a single gauge.
If you get the black bezel, green/black display and black face it will match the factory Ford gauges very well.
What color are you planning on going with the EV2's?

My EV2's I currently have are Black Bezels with White Faces.
I found a custom bezel option for the scan gauge:
Aeroforce Technology Inc | Products - Accessories

The black bezel and white face should match up nicely with your EV2's then.
I believe that is an option at checkout, so you shouldn't have to pay extra for the custom face unless that is something you want to do.
Make sure you get the green illumination. Red hurts my eyes driving at night, and the blue doesn't mesh with anything else in our interior.
