gauges, help

http://www.rpmoutlet.com/propods.htm

I'm going to get that, probably next summer... now, the question I have is which three gauges should I put in it? I won't supercharger or turbocharge for at least one summer more. Should I still get the boost and put it in there? Also, considering as I'm going that way eventually, would an exhaust temp. gauge be a good idea? Which other one? Do I need more then this number of gauges?

i saw wait on it until you get a supercharger that would be stupid to get one for a car thats basically stock, then when you get an sc you can get a fuel pressure, boost and intercooler water temp or oil temp gauge or a air/fuel ratio

alright, but which three would you get if you had to pick? You HAVE to have boost, and I guess the fuel pressure is another good one for SC, oil temp would be nice, but intercooler would also be

depends what sort of intercooler if its air to air i dont know why you would need a water temp thing lol. a fuel gauge is good too so you know if your running lean or rich. Cant tell you what id get id probably get the ones to go with a supercharger previously stated if your positive on gettin an sc around next summer

3 guage pillar pods look out of place, i would just buy a 2 gauge pod that you can mount on your stock pod (reason is they mount the gauges to low near the dash)

an a/f gauge is a light show not much REAL info especially with a sc/tc... so steer clear get a temp gauge, oil pressure, and boost gauge.

no air/fuel, or fuel pressure? Also, engine temp? or what temp?... plus, that's 3 but you said only a 2.

dont waste your time, just do a reliable superchager like procharger then you wont have to bother with all the customization required in a turbo

how sure are you that you are actually even gonna get a poweradder? every one alwasy puts supecharger/turbocharger in their future mods and 99 percent never see it... so think realistically on if you will actually ever do it.

I would get the two a pillar pod along with the gauge bezel pod that autometer offers, get oil and water (motor temperature) and for the bezel get boost and fuel pressure.

I'm quite serious... it may be ''in the future'' several years, but I'm a college kid that only gets summer jobs.. it takes me 4 times longer to earn money... but I make about $5000 a summer. I want to get the other mods I need done so my car doesn't break when I make the leap done first instead of hoping and praying, that's why it'll take me longer. I'm going to stick with my stock 3.23 gears (I think that's what I've got).. to save my gas mileage because it's yeah, my only car.... but I'd definately want to either turbo it or supercharge it. My friend has a Ford turbodiesel, and he's in love with it, never had to tune it himself... got it tuned when he got it, and it's run great ever since.

lol if your that worried about gas mileage then dont throw a supercharger or turbo on there.

Twin Turbo arent something you just get. Its a 3-4k dollar project in the end with all the furl upgrades and custom piping and god knows what else. Plus if your going to run boost do it right and get a forged bottom end....

and their 3.27 gears not 3.23

Do you have a auto or 5-speed?

Neither is going to like the extra Torque they are going to have throw at them. Your transmission is meant for a v6 not a ~300hp car.

Just trying to show you that if this is your only car you need to do it right if you cant afford to lose it

I can't afford to do it now anyway, lol. It'd be a minimum of two years away... I have to upgrade my car's part for it before I can do it
