NEWB to this...

i hope its in the right section but i got a 7.3 turbo diesel and im looking into getting a boost gauge, now im being told that i should get a tranny temp. gauge, but now my question is how important are the gauges for the tranny temp, and the pyrometer. im new to this so be easy lol whats their purpose and how important are they, and what to look for when the gauges are on? i have a chip, and straight pipe and a K&N filter. thanks in advance

well what kind of chip do you have?? but yes with that chip you do need a boost gauge, pyro and a tranny if you have a auto... it is really important cause you do need to keep a eye on everything.. don't want to tear nothing up do ya??
