Pillar gauges question

I'm looking at autometer gauges for my 02 psd and I was suggested boost tranny and egt gauges. For the boost will 30 or 60 psi be better, for the tranny and egt what should I get

30 psi boost gauge is fine for a stockish truck. 1600 degree pyro is sufficient also

The standard 250 degree trans temp gauge is fine. As for getting over 30 psi of boost, I figure you'd have to at least have an aftermarket turbo...
