Towing = trans temp
Performance = fuel pressure

*EDIT: I see you have a G56...in that case, fuel pressure. You don't need a trans temp gauge.

Exactly what awenthol said. Boost, Pyro, and Fuel Pressure.

Go with tranny temp...fuel pressure isn't a huge deal unless you are pushing high horsepower...The tranny temp will let you know whats going on underneath your feet. Just my .02

its also good to have a fuel psi guage to keep an eye on your filter and or lift pump. low psi = dead cp3 = $$$$

Im pretty sure he has a G56, so he wouldn't need the trans temp. But if he does have an auto, then I agree with you.

Ya it says 6spd so fuel pressure, or just get a 2 gauge pillar and get the bd fuel pressure light as thats only 75 compared so like 250 for one gauge..

With your mods, a fuel pressure gauge would be a good idea.

A CP3 is the high pressure injection pump.

IMO...no. The light will only tell you if it's at or below 5psi...which doesn't do a person much good.. It could be just at 5psi or it could be at 1/0 or hovering around 6....spend the money on a full gauge..
