Boost or wideband A/F Gauge?

On a JRSC w/bbk if you could only have one gauge which would it be. I'm thinking the A/F gauge but was looking for other opinions....or....Is there a single gauge that shows both?

definately the wideband, better to be safe knowing what your AF. ratio is doing.

Yeah, it's hard for the S/C to overboost and if it's down on boost for some reason, it sure isn't going to hurt your motor. If you don't know what your A/F is doing, on the other hand, you can cook your motor in a hot second.

But there are other gauges that can do different reading all in one pod tho...i think its AEM that makes it, research it; eventhough, like they said its a SC, not a turbo so the boost should be constant. Good luck.
