second most important gauges

ok...sorry for wearing the gauge thing out lately!

I am gonna put a 4 gauge pod on the overhead....2 holes are takin for fuel PSI and HPOP PSI.....what are the next 2 most important gauges I should put up there??? I was thinking diff temp and coolant temp, but then I thought diff temp and Oil psi, then I thought about coolant temp and oil psi...
hell, I have no idea!!!!

any opinion would be great...

Thanks
