I'm thinking of installing 3 gauges in my car on top of the radio.
Would it fit? Which make should I go with? VDO, autometer, etc?
Right now I'm thinking oil press, oil temp and A/F ratio.
Now I'm wondering about EGT gauge, what is that for (I know what it stands for)?
I mean what do you monitor EGT for?
Thanks
Alex

Re: Gauges question? Help! (adityaax)

From talking to other people w/ turbos on their cars the EGT is important guage to make sure you are not having problems w/ your turbo.
RX7 have problems w/heat and cat. conv. always burn up and get clogged and cause the turbo to get to hot. A EGT guage would help diaginos this before it happens.
