If you do not know about tuning and are not ready to risk a very expensive engine, you should leave tuning to someone who is experienced in your particular application.

That said, having an AFR gauge is a necessity when modifying a boosted car. Now whether that gauge is mounted in the dash permanently or not is a matter of personal preference. Reading a gauge WOT is not a good idea. You really should have a way to datalog. But the problem with such an archaic system as CIS, you really can't make the adjustments you need when heavily modifying the operating parameters.

EGTs are nice but not really necessary once you are beyond the tuning stages. I would not run an aircooled engine, especially a stockish engine anywhere near 12.6:1 when upping the boost.

Why don't you go ahead an step up to a true digital EFI setup where you can really make more power and have better reliability.
