kurt either the Sump with a plate from demontweeks or oil filter for the pressure..

yeah for a turbo ive gone for Swoosh oil Temp and Autogauge Boost gauge Really simple to wirer up...I got the boost gauge for a quick fix for a 10er of ebay brand new...The otherone i was give ..

Or splash out and get some HKS or DEFi gauges which are 60mm iirc and but there about 70quid each

Anyway heres mine autogauge at the top and the swoosh at the bottom

and this is a turbo car the guy is asking about.

EGT and fuel pressue.

If your pump starts to go and your WOT - its good bye engine.

Gauges with warning lamps or buzzers are alos very handy if you are wanting to push the engien to the max.

Wideband gauges are quite cheap now too. From the states or Aus.

Regarding the fuel pressure guage, wouldn't the lambda gauge tell you if you started running dangerously lean?

they'd all tell you...

But the fuel pressure would be the first sign... heat builds from lack of fuel... If the pump was intermittant or just starting to fail.
