where are you gonna put all of those? lol

i like autometer as im sure many other people do as well. i think fullsweep gives a more detailed reading compared to shortsweep, unless its on something like a volt gauge then it doesn't really matter.

Really depends on what your goal is. I dont see any notation in your sig or profile indicating big performance adders. If you dont have any, than Autometer will be fine if you can find a spot for all those gauges.

If you are FI, then you might want to step up your gauges to ones that are fully electronic with good sensors, as that becomes "as good" as you get.

If you are just monitoring stuff I would rate them as (per your list):
1) oil pressure
2) water temp
3) oil temp
4) fuel pressure
5) wide band
6) pyrometer

What I would ditch if you are not running and aftermarket EMS.
fuel pressure, wide band, pyrometer oil temp.

the gauges are fully electric. when all is said and done the car will just be n/a but higher CR, fr head intake, tb, all new exhaust, cams, all engine. 3 of the gauges will be removeable, probly the wide band,pyrometer, and fuel pressure. the triple gauge cluster from massive is made to be removed and factory radio be put back into place fairly easily.
