what gauges?

ADDED EDGE EVO, BALDWIN PA2818 AIR FILTER, AND DOING A 4" DOWNPIPE TO 4" EXIT NO CAT (MAYBE MUFFLER) ON 96' OBS. WHAT GAUGES SHOULD I PUT IN TRUCK? I DO NOT PLAN ON ADDING ANYMORE TO THIS TRUCK. WHO HAS THE BEST DEALS ON GAUGES AND WHAT TYPE (NAMEBRAND) OF GAUGES? WOULD A EGT (PYRO) BE ENOUGH?

I am right now learning the hard way. Get all 3 basic gauges right off the bat. I have isspros and love them. I would get a trans temp, boost, and a pyro. They sell them cheaper in a kit like that versus buying them separatly. I didn't get a trans gauge cause i had an evo with it on it, but if you ever change tuners then you might not have a trans temp anymore.

I am looking at buying a 1997 F350 Dually and I am also wondering what gauges I should be looking in to. I am also wondering where I can find them on the internet, as well as what kind of name brand I should be buying for this truck.. The truck is also a manual if that has anything to do with anything....

With the manual you dont need to get the trans temp. just the boost and pyro. Autometer or Isspro.
