Oil temp and pressure IMHO are really useful no matter what you do. It lets you know when your car is truly warmed up, and in some cases, if something is spectacularly wrong.WillyWonka said:Jill,
Gauges like oil temp, voltage, shift timing, air/fuel, boost, exhaust gas temp, etc. are out there. If you are remaining stock, the stock gauges will provide all of the feedback you'll need.
:werd: and if it actually does see track time, I suggest getting an oil cooler as well.Originally posted by Butt Dyno

Shift light - IMHO not worth it unless a) you are amused by LED's or b) you drag/autox/track your car. (for me its both, look at the blinking lights!)
AF - don't get one unless you get a wideband and don't bother unless you are doing something crazy engine wise.
boost, EGT, same except you don't need a wideband.
In the dash, behind your steering wheel. Toyota was nice enough to include a set for you. They typically light up orange.Originally posted by JillGT
where can i find stock gauges, ......
EGT is a good indicator of A/F ratio. It would be nice to have if you don't have a WB O2 in all the time.marc said:EGT is actually useful if you're boosted, but I think if you're NA then oil temp/oil pressure/water temp are all fine.
However, if you don't NEED them then its kinda pointless to blow the money unless you need that BLING look.
here is more of that fantastic vehicle:Originally posted by schlegelbagel
that steering wheel looks like its from Buck Rodgers and the 21st Century. :wtf:
