Default What 3 gauges would you get??

It seems everyone has there own ideas for what extra gauges are important to put in your STi. So the question is if you had a 3 meter pod, what would you fill it with?

And would your choice change if you also planned on getting an Apexi S-AFC II? What other gauges would you get then?

I also have Boost, EGT & Oil Pressure... but if I were to do it again, I might go with Oil Temp instead.

We already have an Oil Pressure idiot light, and it would be nice to know a bit more about the temperatures inside the engine.

On a track day, I noticed oil pressures dropping from a normal of about 75psi to about 55psi at high RPM. I figured this was a side effect of higher temps. It would have been nice to have an oil temp gauge to get the real info.

Does the rectal gauge come in Celsius??? If so could we get a vendor to start up a GB; I would be so interested in one of those!!

i would like a single dash mounted device that has read-outs for multiple inputs. then i would press a button to cycle through everything.

if there is a warning light coming on, the device would default and stay on that input.

for example, if the oil temp gauge was at it's warning range, it would stay on it, no matter what button you press. you would override only by hitting the button for a longer duration or sequence.

I'm planning on the best of both worlds...

EGT, Oil Pressure, Oil Temp.

(Also a Defi Boost VSD, (displays on windshield))

So, I have everything covered.... but, it's going to set me back about $1K =(

I had planned on getting the Defi BF gauges in the dash pod. I wanted boost, Oil temp and Oil pressure. On a race car I have seen EGT used effectively but how much does it help on a road car? I was under the impression it was used to set mixture ratios.

Thanks
