You don't need any additional gauges. Most people select the boost/vac and fuel pressure gauges. That's what I have. And there isn't any way either gauge will keep you from blowing your motor. At...

For low boost it would probably be OK. As Teej said, the tires water down the gear. It wouldn't be much different from running 3.73s on my car. The 'O6 also has a better suspension than my car. ...

If your running the stock T-3650 then your fifth gear ratio is .62:1. My T-45's is .67:1. The T-3650 with 4.10s runs approximately the same rpms in fifth as a T-45 (and T-5) with 3.73s. There's...

I've been running BBK Lts and catted x-pipe for around 45,000 miles without any problems. They seem OK to me.

Whether you can pass an emission test with LTs is dependent upon the state. You have...

I don't think any gages are absolutely necessary unless you're pushing the ragged edge. Then you might find a wideband A/F ratio gage useful. I'm not running a handheld tuner. I'm running a chip...
