Default Gauge Recommendations

Looking at gauges for the 96 dually that's gonna be pulling it's heart out soon.

Ordered a #10 fuel plate and 3K GSK....
(Yeah MAX, I know you recommend 4K, but I dont want someone else spinning my engine that fast if I need a driver)
Do the AFC mods when I change the fuel plate and slide it full forward.

I KNOW I need EGT and Trans Temp without a doubt.
Anything else would be just for curiosity IMHO. Boost is interesting to watch, and maybe gives earlier indications of load, but the EGT is the one I'll be concerned about.
I've noticed pyro's come with 1500 or 2200 max reading.....I'm sure I don't want to be over 1500 for any length of time, but am I gonna enter that range with these mild upgrades?

SO....what you guys have?
What you like??
I found a combo, single gauge with EGT on the dial, and a digital readout for any temp of choice (wherever you put the sensor) and boost.
Sounds simple, functional, and uncluttered.
Dash mount, $179

This is a work truck, so while I don't want to butcher it, its all about function and value.

Seeking recommendations.

Thanks

Boost & pyro are the top 2, trans temp another one. Fuel pressure would be another one, but since you've got a 12V............

I have the older Isspro EV series & like them a lot. Easy to read, black face with red pointers, matches the dash well. I got the replaceable pillar for the mount. Pyro gauge is going to depend on where the probe is mounted... pre turbo= in the manifold, or in the downpipe.

Clunk, I hadn't thought about the fuel pressure-filter relation.
Good point.
I just didn't want to burn anything up.

Thanks for the input guys
