Currently I am using the stock dash and a AEM A/F gauge and Autometer Oil Pressure gauge.
Having installed a new motor (junkyard) I am looking for a 'information' upgrade.
I am not specifically looking for data, I have a Garmin Catalyst, but would like to add Water Temp, Water Pressure, Voltage Meter, and maybe Fuel Pressure(?). Am I missing something, and are all these really needed. I have done fine w/o these but my friend lost a $6k racing motor when his alternator went out and he ran lean. I would like to know of a problem before I grenade a motor and lose the weekend.
- Budget friendly would be nice - I was trying to stay under $500 but it appears I need to bump to closer to $1,000 for gauges, sensors, etc...
- Warning lights are a must so I don't have to constantly look at gauges
- A complete solution would be great, if not too expensive
It would appear that w/ 2 eyeball vents and a dash blank plate I could get 5 gauges total if I went the gauge only route.
I will definitely also be adding some sort of sequential shift light - any recommendations that are <$200.
Any solutions to guide me or anything to stay away from?
