Default how many gauges is to many?

right now i have a boost, wideband egt, and oil pressure gauge all wired up to the my clock with a 3amp fast acting fuse in line. i would like to add a water temp gauge and just wire it to the same place because its so quick and easy but i dont want to overload anything? is their any risk of damage as long as im using the correct fuse?

I'm thinking this is an example of too many gauges.

Now, if you're talking about how many you can wire in parallel together, you still might be under the 3 amp limit. Check the draw on your gauge packaging.

if you have enough mods to need gauges then you can fix it if it breaks. Having gauges doesn't make the car bulletproof. No do they give you any piece of mind.

I stand by my rule of 1 gauge. A boost gauge.

By the time anything else bad happens and you are able to notice it by watching your gauges other than the road infront of you the damage is already done.

I can't stand 8 million gauges in a car. It looks tacky and 99.9999% of people don't know what to do with them anyway.

well call me crazy but i like the comfort of knowing things like boost levels, a/f ratio's, and oil pressure!
