Hey, New guy asking about Gauges again

Hello there guys, this is my first post.

I have a 4 gauge pillar pod with 1500 EGT, Boost, Trans Temp, and fuel pressure.
I'm considering adding 3 more gauges to top of the dash.
Currently thinking about
HPOP
Volts
and Water Temp

Any thoughts on the 3 other gauges.

2007 F350 RWD Lariat, Dually, long bed.

I do not race, but will be towing a fifth wheel ~15k lbs.

Thanks

Just asking.... Don't you have Volts and H2O temp on the cluster? Looking for a more accurate reading?

Yeah, well there is a water temp and oil pressure indicators, but neither are accurate. There is not a volt meter in the dash unless I'm mistaken.

Besides HPOP, what 2 gauges would you recommend?

I already have the normal 4 in the pillar, though I have yet to install them as I just got them yesterday.

Nope, you're right - No Volt meter. (Looked up an '07 Super Duty Dash) - since you don't have one, I'd go with a Volt meter.

Just so ya know, I'm a guy who's okay with the cluster oil pressure, engine temp and voltage gauges (2001), but do have EGT, Boost and Trans Temp up the A-pillar.

Fuel pressure and a real oil pressure gauge -- that one on the dash is a glorified light(half way, or none 7psi)

In my defense, I was unsupervised

General note:
For all those wanting a premium silicone sealer Kubota 70000-73764 is the best your gonna find. This is a hybrid gray silicone that uses solvent rather than acid to start the curing reaction, this makes it safe for aluminum and and any surface that involves coolant.

The three you asked for already have sensors in the truck, so any monitor will have the. Android and usb may be cheaper, but an edge, more expensive, can have sensors added and display 10 readings.
