I'd say...
if you HAVE to get some.. get an EGT gauge, oil pressure, oil temp.

but really all you need is an EGT if you're going to be doing some tuning. but one gauge looks lonely.

How easy or hard is it to install three gauges in the center pod. Never put gauges on before.

I've decided on EGT, oil pres. and A/F ratio. A good setup for tuning.

not too hard of an install.

just have to make a plate for it..

I've only got one gauge up there right now.. so I'm using the custom ziptie mount till I get more gauges and have a reason to make the backing plate.

EGT, Oil Pressure, Water Temp..

EGT's are vital for tuning.. the oil pressure is always a good idea period.. and the last is your choice, I just chose water temp personally..

Question Dual gauges

What company makes the dual gauges (two readouts on one gauge), and what 6 readouts would you need for N/A?

EGT
Oil Temp
Oil Pressure
A/F Ratio
Water Temp
(from this thread's recommendations)

Is A/F Ratio and Water Temp good to have for tuning, if staying N/A?

Thanks,
-Chris

Water Temp is useful for staying N/A yes... A/F is fine and dandy, but speaking from experience its a built difficult to use in a closed loop system like we have.. the little light ends up flashing all over the place except at WOT, it just doesn't provide enough info for the price.

Korey's .02 cents.

electronic Dual Guages can be found below.
These guages run about $240 a piece, at least for a dual Oil Temp and H20 Temp.

ok lets say that you have a s-afc and aren't sure if your going turbo or not. So from the majority of responses an egt gauge is a definite. The next would be a ??oil pressure?? then the final would be my choice...could i just put in a boost gauge and leave the wires disconnected since i don't have a turbo? I really want to do everything at one time so i don't have to go opening up the dash every other month. Thanks...

Exclamation

*Warning*

Matt, you've got a MY99. If you plan on doing an intake, or already have one on, you NEED the S-AFC.

MY99's are known for running extremely lean above 5k RPM. Not only is this a loss in hp, but can be fatal to your motor. More detail can be found in old Sport Compact Car (Impreza Build Up) Articles, and/or by doing a search here.

I would recommend the S-AFC to control the fuel delivery before any other guages.

After the S-AFC......

EGT
Oil Temp
Water Temp.....

I've got the S-AFC, but if your not 'sold' on this... contact Rallispec or Cobb Tuning and ask them.
