Maybe I should hook up my EGT.

Yeah, because of the BOSE I don't have any extra room by the radio and i'm not about to plug up my vents with gauges. Oh and, I thought about the 2871 option and have decided it's going to have to wait a little longer when it won't be such a bad financial decision :( But I will be getting a 3" exhaust made and the car re-tuned which should give me a nice little bump in power.
