triple gauge pod choices?

I was looking at the triple gauge pod for my 02 powerstroke and I notice most gauges of choice are the boost,pyro, and trans temp. I was wondering since I have a stock trans temp would the 3rd gauge be best as a fuel pressure gauge? I know the stock gauge don't show temp numbers but still wouldn't another gauge be better used like fuel pressure to see if I am defueling under full boost?

So I am guessing the electric gauge is a little pricey? What is the normal fuel pressure and what is considered low? Any write ups on an install of a fuel pressure gauge. I found plenty writeups on the pyro,boost and trans temp gauges thats about it tho.

If you tow at all i would get the trans temp... the factory one is REALLY inaccurate and cannot be trusted.... By the time the needle moves it might be to late on the factory one

Get the tranny temp gauge, it is the second most important, right after the egt.
I have egt,tranny case,and boost in the pillar and engine oil pressure, oil temp, tranny hot side cooler line temp, and fuel pressure in the overhead.

Get the tranny temp gauge, as others have said, the factory gauge is junk. Fuel pressure is a good fourth gauge, but it will not show a "defuel" condition. When this happens your computer cuts back the ICP pressure. The computer has NO control over fuel pressure.

Well so I don't have to start another thread can you tell me is defueling and overboost the same thing? Or do they usually just go hand in hand when running higher boost levels around 25psi I guess?

I would do the Trans gauge... the stocker is a dummy gauge so by the time it says hot you have already toasted your trans....
