Gauges

I'm gonna order some gauges soon and I'm thinking about getting the gauge pillar and another one on the steering wheel for a a/f wide band. I'm asking what gauges to get. I think oil pressure oil temp and fuel pressure. Good? Or should I skip the wideband and get the a/f gauge that isn't the wide band. And on those gauges what's numbers should I get the ones to like 100 or 300 degrees

You should be starting with oil pressure and water temperature. Wideband is good but not really needed until you get into the valvetrain or do a power adder. Honestly for a stock motor those are really the only 2 you need and Autometer sells an instrument cluster bezel with 2 gauge pods built into it that most ppl run.

Okay thanks I'm going with glowshift itll be like 170 for three gauges and pod. So i guess I will do oil press water temp and would a a/f gauge be worth it should i get something else. I'm gonna get three

Autometers or Speedhut and that's it IMO. Best quality gauges you will buy and you'll only have to buy them once.

Only thing I will consider ever purchasing from now on is their pods and if I can find some better ones cheaper I will choose them first.

Here's the setup I had in my Cobra. Lots of ppl run this basic setup and it is a good one Just a water temp and oil press gauge which is really the only thing you need with a stock motor like I said.

You always get what you pay for.
