Default Aftermarket Gauges, for GMC Duramax

What aftermarket gauges could I use. I just read this post: http://www.dieseltrucksite.com/showthread.php?t=29
I have Speedo, Tach, Oil Pressure, Trans Temp, Fuel Gauge, Water Temp, Volts.

What others do I need for my truck?

Well, at an absolute minimum I would suggest a pyrometer and a boost gauge. If you have an auto then I would want a trans temp gauge too. A lot of guys seem to like the electronic programmers so that the gauges are built in.

I do already have a trans temp from the factory. Where would I put the pyro as I have a V configuration.

You could put it in the right manifold close to where the up pipe goes (easier to get at based on what I have seen) or maybe you could get to a place in the pipes just before the turbo exhaust inlet (this would be the preferred place).

Thanks for the information, I will see if there is space to place the pyro there. If I do that then I will take pictures and post them for you.
