The most important gauge is the egt. 1250* is the max you should allow for a extended amount of time. A boost gauge is great for troubleshooting if you start to see a problem with reduced power. Boost and egt go hand in hand when a problem starts to show. Trans temp in a automatic is something you should keep an eye on when towing heavy especially in heavy traffic, mountain terrain, or very hot climates. Anything above 240* is getting to hot

You can't monitor egts with the torque app because there is no sensor and the boost will only read to 24 PSI since that is as high as the map sensor will read. I don't recommend putting a chip on it unless you have a way to monitor egts, boost, and trans temp if it's an auto.

The wicked wheel 2 turbo wheel will help with towing too. you can install it at home in a couple of hours and was a nice addition for towing.

I added the 6.0l trans cooler and reduced trans temp 25+ degrees empty and towing
I added a john woods custom valve body helped firm and quicken shifts a lot.

I got a nice deal on a used ww2 wheel and the shift kit cost me like $245 plus shipping my core back and then changing the trans fluid and filer maybe 7-8 quarts. Overall a very nice set up for towing with daily driver feel too. I don't run tunes very much anymore not that they don't help but I have a very rare ecm code and php, 1023, and few others just have a lot of trouble with the shifting on it. I had to have custom tunes done and still waiting on a revision from php. 1023 hasn't emailed me back since December of 2017 so that's pretty much a lost cause. Dan from SDK made some tunes for a buddies truck and I really liked the shifting for the tow and eco tunes.

No, there are other options for gauge locations. I never liked the light bar look of A pillar gauges. There are pods for locating gauges below the dash and above the rear view mirror. I didn't choose those because you lose sight of the road ahead anytime you check them. Not good. I choose a Auber brand instrument. It's duel channel, square and mounts great just right of the diesel lights. Mine displays EGTs and fuel pressure. What each channel senses depends on the sensor you choose for each? AND, it has many user adjustable parameters and auxiliary contacts.

It's not a great pic, but you get the idea. Red is EGTs and green is fuel pressure. Boost pod is on the steering column. That was a waste of money; I use it as an economy meter.

Ok can't send a pm
What type of sensor is used for fuel pressure? Where is it connected?

I purchased the display, thermocouple (EGTs) and the pressure sender (fuel) from Auber Industries. I have efuel, so the pressure sender is in a port on the return regulator. With a stock fuel (fuel bowl) I would remove the schrader valve and put the sensor in there.
