Buy a trans temp gauge to take the spot for the trans temp displaying on the Aeroforce that he'* using already and allow for another parameter? I guess I'd vote 2 Aeroforces to get 2 more parameters being displayed. I really can't think of another parameter that it lacks. Would fuel pressure benefit you at all??
Edit:
I can't remember if you have the first design gauge but the new one has an updated design on the face of the gauge. From what I can tell, you're not too picky about asthetics though

Hmmm.....maybe.....Transmission Temp.
Then the Aeroforce gauge can monitor KR and A/F.

A second Aeroforce gauge would gain me one more parameter....

I have the second design gauge with the two lights.
My fuel pressure gauge is mounted remote under the hood. I don't want it in the passenger compartment because it is not electrical.

And I am picky about asthetics to some degree.

An OE A/F signal is kinda useless in most peoples minds in the car universe. It'* not really possible to get a good accurate reading for tuning and what-not.

I've seen a few GP'* online with dual Aeroforce'* and that'd definetly what I would suggest.. Wiring might be a little work though.

Why do you have your first Aero in the lower vent? I guess I would want it in the top one to be on a better sight plane personally.

Progress has slowed to a halt.
Too busy right now.
Business trip to Ontario will have me 3000 miles away from my Bonne for a week.

Maybe when I get back Bill will have sent me the Jewel to top off my engine. :P

.....the garage is cool, so the fibreglass is taking a long time to harden up.....or maybe because it had been sitting on a shelf for 10 years.

yeah thats it....
my first attemt on your light didnt work out because i used 5-6 year old epoxy, didnt harden at all, but then again it might have been mixed wrong

it chemicaly cured so temp has little to do with it

Just had to dig this thread up to put some closure to it.

I have gotten very used to the Aeroforce gauge and can now toggle thru all critical parameter many times while driving........that'* the reason I placed it in the lower vent, and it still has a very good viewing angle.

So I decided on the AutoMeter Wideband Air/Fuel gauge. It matches the blower air temp gauge.

Mr. Loomis delivered it today.

I wish I would have drilled the third hole in the pod cause I want to do one more gauge.......
