4th guage ?

In the market for some guages ... thinking about a quad set-up.

Beside the obvious 3 most important, should I get a forth ?

Would would I want to monitor .... Spare tire pressure ??

Also, boost range thru 60 I'm assuming is enough sweep.

How about pyro 1200, 1500 ??

Keeping in mind mods will come later ...

Thanks !

I have boost, trans, egt (1600), and hpop, I would suggest the instead of hpop get the aero force interceptor or make a chip switch mount

I have an hpop as a forth, neat to have, im not sure it is necessary though, it connects to the engine harness so you could get an aero force interceptor like 351 said and still read hpop. I have a 60psi boost gauge as well. 35 or 40 is fine for most trucks id imagine . definitely get more than 1200 for egt.

I'm topping my 35 psi boost already, and reading hpop psi is pointless without know duty cycle IMHO, yes I have a pointless hpop gauge

Well I kinda wanna have low pressure guages, so they max out like all the guages in the fast n furious movies ....

No, but seriously ...

Aero Force Interceptor ??

Definately like the switch mount idea !

OK, just looked up Aero ... definately one to have

Watched a U-tube video on it.

Wondering if every monitored function is compatiable with the OBS PS ??

Aside from boost and egt it reads everything, although you can buy the adapters to read boost and egt, but it won't read higher then the PCM will iirc, I like the sweep of my other gauges tho

It will read boost from the MAP sensor.

To the OP...A good fourth gauge to have is fuel pressure.
