Default Gauges

Ok here is a question. I'm going to install gauges in my truck. I know I'm going with trans temp, exhaust temp, and I already have boost gauge. The question is should I get a hpop gauge or fuel pressure gauge to finish out my set. Thanks for any help.

Fuel PSI hands down.

Saved my ass several times.

I would never run a gauge for hpo.. it can be read from data so I use that.

I second the fuel pressure gauge. If I had to choose between boost and fuel pressure, I would choose fuel pressure.

Thanks fellows. That's the info I was looking for. Also what should fuel pressure always be reading and what kind of drop will indicate a problem.
