FRx or gauges, what to do????

Whats up everyone. I am debating on which to get for my next mod. I do not tow or drive like I am racing. Just regular old driving. I know the gauges are good to help monitor things but I see more of a benefit coming from the FRx for me at this time. What do u guys think?

I think of Gauges as being Mandatory when adding tuning (important to know you EGTs etc.) but, with the exception of the Useless Trans Temp Gauge, when stock I'm not sure it's such a high priority.

FRX, is a wonderful thing to do, evens the system out, bleeds air away (if you ever ran out of fuel, it's a Night/Day experience restarting with ANY kind of RR). So, If I had to choose, I'd go FRX (gauges later )

I have a chip intake and exhaust, but I can probably count on my hand the number of times I have floored it on any tune. Usually have the 80hp tune on and don't drive it hard. I just drive to work and home.

I have a transmission temp gauge. It was free and installed after I blew up my tranny. So far other than just wanting to monitor stuff, there still doesn't seem to be a NEED for the gauges at this time. Not giving the air in the fuel a way to escape and not go thru the injectors seems like a good thing.

then you have no air present. FRx will equal out the fuel delivery to the #8 injector, with the others.
