Extra gauges --> LM1 boost, etc.

Hello Pelicans,

I am planning my conversion to the dark side (boost). I won't install any components of my turbo kit until I have the correct gauges so I can know that the engine is running safely within the margins. This is the list of gauges that I think would be useful:

Air Fuel Ratio
Manifold Pressure/boost
Exhaust Gas Temperature
Fuel Pressure
Charge Temperature
Cylinder Head Temperature
Voltage Meter

I know the Voltage Meter is not required for boost, but I want to know what is going on with the electrical system anyway.

Please let me know which gauges you have by clicking on the poll above, and if you have another type of gauge that is not listed, please let me know what that is.

Am I going overboard with my list of gauges?
