What type of gauges?

I am about to buy the SF turbo kit for my GTS and I was wondering what type of gauges I should get. I want to have them on my A-pilar, but I dont know if I want to have the pod with 2 or 3 gauges. I am also open to ideas of placing them in other places, but I just dont know where.
I am also going to buy a turbo timer and boost controller and have them custom fit into where the little console door is. Im thinking of taking off the door and then filling in the gap and having the timer and controller custom mounted in there. If anyone has any suggestions or ideas for me, please let me know.

i think it would be smart to have a boost gauge, fuel pressure and oil temp, just to make sure that the boost is correct, that your fuel line is okay, and that your engine oil is not getting too hot, i would also try to get an a/f ratio gauge too...just to make sure that your not running to lean/rich while the turbo is active, that could be very bad hehe.

YOU MUST HAVE AN A/F ratio gauge. this is a must. Your whole turbo system depends on A/f too much and you are robbing yourself of horsepower, and too little KAAAAAABBBBBBBOOOOOOOMMMMMM DETONATION. bye bye ENGINE. Ithink you should have boost, egt, oil press, a/f.

I believe it stands for exhaust gas temp. a good gauge to have on a turbo car

Well I don't know about performace aspects but making sure exhaust gas is hot enough for the cat to work is important when passing emissions. Same with air/fuel. I would say these are two very important gauges to have. I use the Air/fuel for N/A tunning. I couldn't tell you a good read on the EGT, sorry?
