This is for my 1987 Turbo Coupe. Here's what I am thinking. I want to install one of those Autometer 3-gauge panels where the stereo equalizer is normally. I would also use 3 of those gauge angle pieces so that I could face the gauges more towards me. I want to put in the following gauges:

Fuel Pressure (electric)
Air/Fuel
Water Temp

I will move my boost gauge from the clock opening and put it next to the FP gauge so I can watch them easily to make sure fuel goes up 1/1 with boost. I want to put the A/F gauge up where the boost gauge now sits.

Can you think of better choices of gauges or a different setup? Will I have any clearance issues with the trim around the EQ slot? Thanks!

as far as the air/fuel gauge I don't think it is worth it unless your going with the wideband. I know my air fuel gauge is stupid goes back and forth constantly not worth it my opinion.

A pyrometer is far better than a narrow band AF, especially with a turbo, but you'll need to learn how to read it.

The setup sounds good to me

My other thought was to have two intake temp gauges, with probes located after the turbo and before the throttle body, so I can monitor those. Either there or on either side of the intercooler. Any thoughts on THAT?
