    I just put the AEM digital Boost/vacuum gauge and digital wideband in mine. I haven't had much time on them yet but so far they seem to work pretty good. I ordered them both from summit. Here is a pic of mine.

    I just ordered a 2 pod pillar pod, and think i might use this gauge as one, http://www.summitracing.com/parts/sww-214536/overview/
    But idk what gauge i should use for the second one. I am thinking either post inter-cooler temp, a/f ratio, oil temp, or oil pressure. I dont know yet.

    First two gauges should be AFR and boost. Then do others after that, if you are still inclined or start pushing some limits.

    Some bilsteins, OME 885's, and an AAL.
    I used to have defi gauges in my Lexus. Even had a big 60mm HKS boost gauge for quite some time. Hands down the best gauges out there imo of course. I've used an innovative wide band in all my boosted cars.

    I am a Defi fan myself. I heard rumor that they were coming out with AFR gauge. If so, I am going get one.

    I ended up buying the autometer from autozone online and got 40 bucks off because they had a 20% off everything sale. so it was only 160 bucks.
    I also bought a dual pod pillar pod. Still am contemplating what to put in the second pod. I am thinking either post intercooler air temp or engine oil temp or pressure. I am not really sure.

    The easiest is the AEM, like in the 2nd post.

    If you want to match your boost gauge, Autometer also sells one.
