Which gauges would you install?

Got my SOS 2 gauge pod and have the Innovate XD-16 wideband as one gauge. Wondering what would be your other gauge and why? I was thinking water temp or fuel pressure. At this time i have no plans to install an S/C but that might be later down the road.

I'm looking at Autometer Phantom II because the white background matches my white faced dash gauges and they are backlite not face lit.

Thanks for the response.

Just wondering why you felt the need to install a wideband on a N/A car. Temp and fuel pressure would be good, especially if you do supercharge eventually.

I suppose I should have asked that before I bought the wideband. Talked to a few 03/04 Cobra guys (I know they are S/C and I'm not) and got the impression it's a good thing to monitor. At least now I'm ready for the S/C or turbo.

Maybe I just put the wideband aside for now and wait until I need it and just go with the temp and fuel pressure gauges. Or I get a boost gauge and order an S/C and slip it on under the wife radar. That might work. Nah she has a Mustang too and wouldn't buy it that the gauges are to help get better fuel mileage.

Yeah... Don't think the covert supercharger thing would work too well. Nothing wrong with having a full-time wideband. It's always good to know where you're at, forced induction or not.
