Actually the thin stock antenna is more aerodynamic than the fatter shorty antenni.

How about a reality gauge? If you think you're gonna lay down 400 horses and you're concerned about gauges...you're dreaming.

headlight fluid level and muffler bearing temp are two good ones too. Saved my *** on track before.

You should have started the thread with that
But since you're serious, my .02:
1) boost gauge
2) wbo2
3) oil pressure
4) water temp

Those are the most important imo

Just run one gauge- the plx dm-100


Pics are in my build thread. Can display 4 sensors on one screen. Price is quite decent

Also, run a boost gauge and put it in your glovebox. Assuming you have an ems with overboost protection, u won't need it very often.
