I bought my truck used, it has a pyro and a EG gauge. I've already decided that I'm getting a fuel pressure gauge, should I get an electrical or mechanical and why. What other gauges should I get?

Fuel Pressure is a must. I would get a mechanical FP gauge because that way you know it will be as accurate as possible. Alot of people run Trans Temp, Boost, Fuel Pressure and EGT gauges.

FP for sure - regardless of your fuel system upgrades/age. i second the trans temp gauge . . .

i would go with mechanical FP - super easy hook-up and more reliable IMO. no need for an isolator - just make sure your connections are good and run a needle valve to dampen the pulsations from the IP. the pulsations can be hard on the gauge if not dampened.

Thanks, I just reread my OP, I have a boost and a EG gauge.

I'm thinking mechanical FP, I'll probably go with an isolator. If so, do I still need the needle valve and where does it go?

I was thinking trans temp too, just trying to figure how many pods I'll need and figuruing where I'll put them.
