thread title of the year. I would definately say you need water temp. That is the single most important gauge you can have.

ifr you go fuel pressure you need to get a gegulator. Some way to adjust what you see I think.

for me I would get temp of some sort.

EGT, oil, or water.

or get all of them and get another pod

you can tell the same things from the temp. besides oil pressure is all over the place when you are racing. high, low, high. It's hard to keep your eye on it. if it flat lines you are in trouble anyway because by the time you see it your motor is completely toast.
