Gauges for SuperCharger

What gauges should a supercharged car put in? I was thinking wideband A/F and Boost, I can't think of anything else that is TOO important. What other is highly recommended?

If you do track driving, I'd recommend oil pressure (I don't trust factory gauges or idiot lights) and oil temp.

i had kinda the same question but also, how hard is it to install a boost gauge, oil temp/pressure gauge, and air/fuel? is it something relatively simple? The gauges should come with instructions right?

Yes, its fairly easy although time consuming with some wiring to make sure you get everything right. Instructions are included of course

I agree...... time consuming but not hard.

For a wideband... since your 2nd O2 will most likely be turned off... I just used the 2nd O2 bung.

Oil pressure and fuel pressure are pains...... oil usually Tee's off the sending unit by the filter
Fuel pressure either you need to drill and tap the fuel rail or by an aftermarket one with the place for it. Since Tom will drill and tap it fairly cheap..... thats what I did.


AS for gauges.... Boost/Vac, fuel pressure, oil pressure, maybe a wideband (but they aint cheap) maybe an EGT if you got a place to put it.
