At least get a low fuel pressure light, those work fine as well, you just don't know quite as much about what is going on. As far as putting on a box. I ran my truck with a hot box and injectors for quite a while on the stock turbo and transmission, pulling up to 18.5k at times. The only thing is, once you add a fueling box your stock transmissions days are numbered. If you did the proper supporting mods, you could be trouble free forever but the cost starts to rise pretty sharply when you get into transmission work. If you don't want to worry about your tranny, stick with a timing only box, and upgrade the trans cooling system.
If you want a fueling box, do the trans mods first so you don't buy an entirely new tranny down the road. A torque converter, shift kit, and better cooling system would do wonders for it and allow it to hold up to a fueling box and mild injectors. It really just depends on how much power you want to be honest. also, to avoid needing to monitor gauges, just stick with a timing only box. Forgot you added that little clause in there.
The edge EZ is a good timing box, adds about 65hp and is good for better throttle response too. Hope this helps.
