Some type of knock light because yeah while your EMS should actively monitor for knock, and while your EMS should log for knock, it is quite helpful when tuning or driving in general. I like the Turbo XS knocklite

Running AFR, Boost, Water Temp, Oil temp/pressure all in the center panel I made. All the gauges are useful to me. Plenty of time to catch a quick glance down a front straight on track.

Comradefks, what brand is that boost gauge you have there. I have been looking for a lower range gauge and all i can find is 20 - 30. This is too high for my 8-12 range.

That gauge of yours would be perfect.

I will go with Hakans solution in the next couple of months but in the meantime need to cover the basics. AFR, Boost, Oil Pressure and water temp by only buying one more gauge...for the meantime.

AEM UEGO I picked up 2nd hand on this forum a few months back. Don't remember exact model number. Seems to work well so far. Pretty simple to install.
