In my opinion yes, if you value your turbo. Run too high of egts for more than short durations and you shorten the life of your turbo. I would rather spend the extra $100-150 and have piece of mind.

Just my 2

Depends on what tuner. I am running the H&S mini and no additional pyrometers to buy.

Same with the Spartan. No additional pyrometer needed.
