4th gauge?

I am currently running a boost and pyrometer. I am definitely going to purchase a trans temp gauge. I am going to have to buy an A-pillar pod anyway, and the price between the triple and quad pillar pods are very close. Needless to say, I am considering a 4th gauge as well. Any suggestions on what I should put in for the fourth gauge?

also, what is the red-line transmission temp? how high of a temp should the gauge read?

Thanks

Would you recommend a mechanical or electrical?

Electrical, I don't believe it is legal to run fuel into the cab of a vehicle, plus it isn't that great of an idea anyway.

you can run a mechanical if you get one with and isolator where the fuel pushes on a diafram that has antifreeze on the back side that moves the gauge

IMHO if you have to ask what gauge to add you dont need it. Just get a 3 gauge pod. If you must get one Fuel pressure is nice to know if you are hot rodding and adding a bunch of performance adders but it's pretty much either there or it isn't and if it isn't you most likely aren't going very far. Personally I like the idea of a drive pressure gauge. You will learn a lot about the turbo and how it acts and is affected by different driving conditions by running one.
