    This is the gauge set I made for mine, have mixture display, oil, MAP pressure or vacuum gauge and a MAP voltage gauge I made.

    I know the radio is crappy, but the CD player I bought on ebay blew up :).

    If i was going to put 2 gauges in that i dont already have it would be oil pressure and voltmeter. I rekon that the gauge pod style idea in the console look sick.
