Alright sounds good. As for gauges what did you decide to go with in your car kerns? Tomorrow ill be buying my FRPP 42 Injectors and he offered me an autometer phantom gauge but never got back to me yet about what the psi max on it was..

I would go with AFR(wideband), Boost(30vac-30psi) and oil pressure.

I am running an AEM wideband which I really like, but I wouldn't go with my boost gauge. Its digital and doesn't show partial boost so only 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 ect. If I had to do it over again I would get a more responsive digital boost gauge or a mechanical one.

I only run one gauge, boost...and even that is kinda useless cause it doesnt tell me **** and its not like I look at it.

I thought about removing it once just cause I thought it would be funny to have no gauges and tell people it was stock.

Come dyno day would you think an AEM Windband and Boost Gauge would be ok starting out for the tuner and then slap in an Oil pressure one soon after?

my tuner has his own a/f gauge that hooks up to his computer as well as boost...Im pretty sure most tuners do this and wont use your gauges

Yeah your tuner should hook your car up and use everything they have. The gauges are pretty much for you. And tbh you don't even need gauges if you didn't want them. But they're there to tell you if something goes wrong

The a/f is good to have just so you can make sure your not running lean...this is about the only thing I really see that will help you keep your motor together.

But you really dont need gauges at all.....
