$450 isn't going to get you all three but....

Gauges new should run about $300 with a pod
Farmboy's has a budget exhaust for $250-ish I think
and the DIY Tymar intake will run you about $100...maybe less.

I have SOME stuff to help you out if you want.

I still have a 2.0bar Greddy boost gauge
a New in box Isspro Trans Temp Gauge
and the Napa filter for a DIY tymar

If your interested.

It all depends on how fast you wanna go. After what you listed, I would put mods in this order:

1. Tranny upgrades
2. Turbo (preferably aftermarket upgrade...not just replacing parts on the stocker)
3. Intercooler Upgrade
4. Dual HPOPs, Injectors
5. Water/meth...or nitrous

Sky is the limit. All depends on how deep your pockets are and how crazy you want to get.

Hey Ditty, Im sure you thought of this, but just a thought.. you could always wire that temp gauge up to anything else, coolant, diff, oil. It'll just always say "Trans temp"
