    What do you guys think - I'm buying a Lotek gauge pod (link below) which holds 2 gauges. I'm definitely adding a Trans Temp gauge. Now I'm debating which would be more critical/useful: an Oil gauge or Volt gauge.

    Your educated thoughts? Thanks in advance. :cool:

    If you tow, oil temp would be smart.

    if your into big stereo, I'd go volt's.

    The first gauge should be a Scanguage. That will cover most of the important items. Trans temp is a good choice if the Scangauge doesn't support it. I also like outside air temp.
