DP Tuiner guages

I have a 1996 F350 dualley that is mostly stock except for 3 inch intake, has 4 inch exhaust. Want to install DP Tuner for more pulling power for my 5th wheel. I read that I should have guages installed along with the tuner. My question is what guages do I need? Thanks.

Chief in importance is a Pyrometer to measure EGT's. (Exhaust Gas Temps)
Next is Trans Temp if you have an auto
Last is boost. Not necessary but very useful to make sure truck is performing properly, and to keep from overspeeding the turbo

So.

1) Pyro
2) Trans Temp
3) Boost

Redlines are
Pyro: 1250 max sustained EGT, BEFORE turbo.
Trans Temp: 235
Boost: 25psi
