Isakson I've had good luck with Isspro gauges. I have had the EV series in my old 99, and soon in my 96. Dipricol and Autometer are the other big brands that most use and like. I would avoid the Glow Shift gauges, they have been real hit and miss as far as quality but seem to be improving lately. One nice thing about Isspro's is they are made in the good 'ol US of A.

I have the AutoMeter gauges in a 3 gauge pillar pod. I'm fairly happy with them although my boost gauge sticks once in a while. I think if I had to do it over again I'd go Isspro.

Id go isspro or autometer, very good gagues. Sence you have a 5 speed no need for tranny temp gague. I was going to go with pyro/boost/fuel psi gagues.
