Default New Gauges

Help me choose what additional gauge I should install in this blank pod hole.
I have the AeroForce Gauge setting on KR and Trani Temp most of the time.
The new gauge is the SC exit air temp gauge.

I was considering an Air Fuel gauge.
What does this connect to in order to read Air Fuel.....the O2 sensor??

I have an extra O2 bung in the exhaust pipe that I am reserving for a Wideband O2 sensor when funding will allow....$500.
....but the Wideband unit comes with it'* own square digital readout.

So what should I install to fill the empty hole

Air/Fuel is the same as watching the O2 on the aeroforce.

Thing is..with aeroforce..it doesn't leave much out of the loop to "need"

an A/F is not bad as i have one on my car...all you do is tap into the wire that goes to the PCM...its an Easy install

here is a wild idea, but i plan it on my 03....how bout dual Aeroforce gagues in the POD and then the Air Temp in the Vent hole

that way you see 4 Important parameters at a glance, and then the Air Temp which wont fluctuate as much in the vent

Pat, why do you have an AF gauge?

Paul, trans temp is one of the most critical gauges you could have.

If you can interpret the numbers that flash around on the aeroforce O2 setting then you don't need a gauge that reads 10-16 ratios.

The second aeroforce gauge is a good idea.......so is the oil temp gauge.....
