Default putting together a gauge cluster

I am working on building a gauge cluster for my rx5.0 and was looking for some input on gauge choice and what brand i should look for.

I want to replace the factory cluster with all after market gauges keeping as many gauges as possible in the cluster.

I was thinking about using autometer phantom gauges cause I all ready have a 2 1/16 egt gauge from before and the phantom series looks good and has lots of choice. I will need a tach (3 3/8), speedometer (3 3/8), fuel level, oil and water temp, oil pressure and was thinking about volt and fuel pressure (all 2 1/16). Are there other brands other then auto meter around that are as good but a bit cheaper? are all auto meter gauges the same? I know electric vs. mechanical but are the different series just differnt looks? am I missing any gauges that I should have? I will only be running a mild street motor nothing major, no NOS, or blower ect.

electrical gauges for sure: tach, speedo, h2o temp, voltage, fuel, oil pressure, you can get boost and A/F later on if you add a s/c!
