All the usual's.



Boost

Oil temp

Oil pressure

Water temp



It's real nice to know these things when you're pushing your car. You remember Ryan's three gauge setup in the center console? That's a great way to take car of three of those gauges.



Anything else is overkill. Gauges such as EGT and fuel pressure are nice to have on hand when you start tuning on a dyno with a wideband O2 sensor. There are O2 sensor gauges out there. Unless they're the expensive wideband O2 sensors, they're just not good enough for tuning.
