Hey, I am looking at ordering some autometer ultralight guages. I am for sure going to get boost, and egt. I dont know what else to get. I have upgraded injectors, fuelpump, turbo ect.... I am not sure wheather or not to get oil temp, or oil press, water temp, or fuel pressure. Will you put these in order of importance please, and a range to look for them in.

I like my oil pressure gauge, because it shows real numbers vs. the stock one.
The stock water temp. gauge works fine by me so far, as I consistently run just to the left of that little thermometer icon on the gauge with a 180F thermostat.
Fuel pressure gauge I think would be good. I don't have mine yet, but am planning on getting one. I've already got an open hole for the fuel pressure gauge.
Oil temp. is overkill IMHO.
So, IMHO, I'd say:
1. boost - a must have
2. egt - as a safety gauge only
3. fuel psi - for seeing problems before you lean out
4. oil psi - just because I like to see real numbers better
5. water temp.
