Question Gauge???

I have a MY99 Legacy 2.5GT...I have installed already a dual gauge pod in the middle of my dash (sort of like the mustang)...it has a Air/Fuel Ratio Meter (red/yellow/green) and a Fuel Pressure Meter (0-100 psi)...I am about to buy a dual piller gauge pod and am not sure what gauges I should get in addition...I am running my car naturally aspirated with a CAI, Magnecor wires, NGK Plugs, Borla Headers (Gen 3), JC Sports 2.25 cat-back w/o resonator, Unorthodox pulley, Synthetic oil, MSD DIS-2, and a Zex kit with a 55hp shot...I am shooting for a EGT and a Oil Pressure gauge!!!

What 2 gauges should I get instead???

Those 2 gauges are the gauges that I was going to suggest : EGT and Oil Pressure Gauge. EGT is important because you have a NOx setup. Oil pressure is always good to have just in case oil pump fails or there is a big oil leak that you don't know about. Instead of oil pressure, maybe oil temp, or even vacuum/boost gauge.

I have oil pres., A/F, and voltimeter on my car along with SAFC which shows engine vacuum because I have a MAP sensor.

Well, you know what the oil pressure tells you.

Vacuum is important to know because that tells you any potential leaks and cracks in the engine. You will see a diagram in most service manuals, but too less vacuum means there is a leak in vacuum line or even headgaskets. This is more like a health meter for your engine. If you ever going to get a SAFC, you don't need this though.

I personally would go for oil pres. and EGT, just like you said. Also, you have NOx, right? How about a Nitrous pressure meter?
