Or should I just get a pod for 3 gauges? I don't want an air/fuel, cause all it is, is a pretty dancing light. I'm thinking boost (its a must), and oil pressure.

I need some opinions.

But also, a pyrometer would also be a good touch... right? Or is that useless?

I'd do those two then save for a wideband for some accurate air fuel readings

Boost = to make sure that your are not over-boosting
Oil Press = to check whether the engine is working properly or not

Boost and Oil pressure, because you need to know if there is oil pressure and you need to know how much boost your running,.
