Definitely get the Aeroforce gauge. Very informative. A wideband would be nice too.

Or you could save some space, keep the oil press, and get this for the aeroforce.

I'm planning on doing that eventually.

Why would you bother with a wideband?

Once you are done tuning, the wideband doesn't really provide any better info than a narrowband and it's about 10 times the cost

The aeroforce is a great one to buy like the other guys have stated. I bought the dual aeroforce gauges and the third hole i put a volt gauge all from PBSS. Very Happy

Or you could get an upgraded cluster (ss or lss) and have the oil press already.

I have a non s/c gauge so I already have the oil and volt. I think I am going to do dual aeroforce in my 3 gauge pod and saving an open spot for boost (currently saving for a new project Smile )

I was thinking about doing that, but my aeroforce stays locked on KR and trans temp during most driving situations. I'm probably going to make a custom gauge pod for the cubby hole.

Its always a good thing to monitor your WOT AFR to make sure you don't lean out for whatever reason, since most boosted applications run an 11.7-11.2 WOT AFR and narrowbands are only accurate at 14.7 all you'll be doing is guessing using a narrow band...its just something I would rather not guess on 2 Cents

The stock oil pressure sensor isn't accurate at all. It basically only tells you that you have pressure, not what the pressure is.

Didn't think about that lol I'll have to deal with that when the time comes (probably throwing an oil pressure gauge somewhere else)

It gives you some sweep, but it's better than the 3400. Oil press reading is either "ON" or "OFF" Laughing
