In-dash 2 1/16" gauges

Post by Areddi »

So I'm thinking about adding a gauge cluster to my center console with 2 slots for 2 1/16" gauges on my 01'. This honestly would be mainly aesthetic, but getting a couple of useful readouts would be cool in the process.

I would definitely like to do a volt-meter, but my questions are:

-What would be another gauge to put in that would be reasonable easy to configure a read-out for, and somewhat useful?
-Does anyone have experience installing these who can give me some tips?

For track machine...

Oil Temp
Air/Fuel ratio (and/or EGT)

For street toy.....add BOOST Gauge with your choice of supercharger!

Believe me if I had 3k to spend I would be all over a super charger! Then it would be boost gauge for sure.

What is the real purpose for air/fuel? Just to see if you're running lean/rich? My car is N/A and will stay that way for the foreseeable future, so what does that read-out do for me?
