fuel pressure gauge

I'm looking at getting gauges for my truck. I'm looking at going with EGT, Boost, and maybe fuel pressure n the HPOP. Is the fuel pressure worth getting is my question? Is a air intake temp gauge worth getting? Or is the HPOP gauge? Also is there any other gauges that I should look at?

After doing EGT, boost, trans, and ECT, I would want to go back with a digital gauge setup.
With digital gauges, you can monitor anything that the PCM does. Such as ECT, EOT, trans temp, IAT, boost, EBP, BARO, ICP, IPR, and many others. You'd have to add EGT and fuel pressure aftermarket, but that's not a big deal.
But for you with a manual, EGT, boost, fuel pressure, and ICP, would be the top four.

I bought an edge insight cts monitor, after fighting standard gauges. The cts is a sweet little deal, and a lot less stress installing

The HPOP gauge isn't of much use to you without IPR duty cycle. The two readings go hand in hand and one is useless without the other.

EGT, Boost, Fuel pressure mechanical gauges and a Edge CS for the rest is my vote.

does the edge insight allow you to monitor everything? I know it monitors EGT, and boost. If it can monitor everything why buy other gauges?

The edge can monitor everything itself, but you need to buy add on harnesses and they end up costing a lot.

That, and the edge can only read boost as high as the factory map will allow. Thats why i suggest going the route i listed. Cheapest way to monitor everything, plus real gauges are cool.

But if you prefer the clean look of a monitor only, just pay for the additional harnesses and sensors. But then I would get the CTS for its bigger screen over the CS.

In my truck I have 5 mechanical gauges and a CS mounted in y dash displaying 6 more PIDs. Gives me something to look at on my long, boring commutes

how high is the factory map on boost? on the edge websight it say it monitors fuel rail pressure. What is better to monitor fuel rail pressure or fuel pressure?

You don't have a high pressure fuel rail, so it won't monitor that. And there is no factory fuel pressure sensor, so it won't. That's an add on.
And the MAP sensor will read as high as your boost goes UNLESS you have a boost fooler.
