Question what one gauge of 3 is most important when skidplate blocks oilpan to airflow?

I have a 2000 RS with a 5 speed. I must keep the A/C. The car has stock drivetrain. However, I have a very large skidplate blocking any airflow to the oilpan. I go to track days, rallycrosses and other "hard" driving.

Of the three gauges below, which one would be most important or which one do I put right in closest to my line of my direct line of vision. I only have room for one at this location.

*Oil Pressure

*Oil Temperature

*Water Temperature


Thanks for your input.

I doubt any useful cooling comes from air flow around the pan. Not much air flows past, the airflow would be too turbulant. I suggest connecting you own digital gauge to the stock dash gauge sender unit (disconnect dash unit) and go from that point.

My oil temp gauge dropped 10 degrees Celcius from its previous warm average when I took my skidplate off. It's the Subaru perf. gauge pack gauge. FYI.

Give me about a month to get the gauges in and figure out how I need to "persuade" the skid plate so it'll fit around my headers, and I'll be able to tell you. All 3 will be in, probably before the skid plate as I need to create a jig to keep the mounting holes in the same place so I don't skew anything while shaping it.
