Looking to get some gauges and since my phone is messing up and wont let me search I figured I'd just ask. I always see ppl say boost egg and trans temp.keep in mind I have a 97 obs and it has a manual transmission. I'm waiting on the diamond eye 3 inch downpipe and four inch straight pipe, 6637 intake. In the future I was thinking of the idm mod a six position chip, 99 17* degree pump, and maybe maybe stage one injection tors and intercooling it. Truck doesn't see much as far as towing but I do haul three of my horses every weekend to a friends house about an hour away in a 16 foot stock trailer I own. Now I was thinking boost egt and coolant temp but I'd like to see what all of y'all had to say about it. I'd like to a stick with autometer phantom gauges but dk who has the best price

what he said.....except without the exclamation points LOL

For the gauge setups we do on manual trucks, we either keep it a two gauge setup or for the third we go with fuel psi, Hpo psi or a scangauge.

Scangauge will display everything the pcm sees plus it has two analog ports for add on sensors. It can also do injector buzz tests, cylinder contribution tests, read and clear dtcs.
