Wanting to add 3 more guages

Im gonna add three more gauges to my lineup. Already have the typical boost, pyro and trans. I know for sure I am adding fuel pressure, Air pressure (for the rear air bags) and.... Need some opinions on what the third should be. It will be mounted in a upper dash pod. Thanks

How about an oil pressure gauge? So you can acctually see what your engine is doing instead of looking at the stock gauge and its Ok/Not Ok needle position. Just a thought

I was in the same position not too long ago... I decided to go with the scan gauge from Terminator Engineering. You get a whole lot with that bad boy. You can monitor all functions real time plus your able to scan codes, do contribution test, buzz test and record data. Best part is that it's a simple plug in and go.

Because your EOT is pretty important.

Thats a good one too. The stock gauge is basically an idiot light, its either on or off.

I second the engine oli temp.Its always different then the coolant temp.The truck might be almost fully warmed up but the engine oil temp is still only 110-120 so I don't beat on it till it gets up to over 160.And it takes a while even with the 70 degree weather.
