    Oil pressure, Boost/vac, and EGT pyrometer. After doing some research, I wouldn't waste my time with the A/F gauge, the pyrometer is WAY better.

    :withstupid:

    a/f is a worthless lightshow. drop acid if you want to watch lights.
    run egt, boost, and oil pressure if you want a turbo car

    Where is the best place to run an oil pressure with or without a turbo (if it is different)?
