EGT gauge questions

Heres the story...
I've ordered a quick spool housing and a 3" downpipe...... Do I really need to get an egt gauge to watch my temps or am I ok with not getting one right now? Reason I am asking is I can't afford one yet. But with these mods do I have to worry about it at this time? The only other mod I have is I straight piped the exhaust. Thanks for any input!

You should be fine. You really only need them once you put on a chip and or injectors.
Good luck

IMO, you don't need it now but it never hurts to have guages to monitor the vitals. and if you decide to start doing some more upgrades they will be there.
