Need advice picking guages- please read, thanks

I've ordered Water Temp, and Oil pressure 2 5/8 for the vents in the center dash. For the pillar pod (door) I've ordered the 2 1/16 Boost/Vacume and the Transmission Temp guages.

My car is N/A and will be for awhile.... My question is, should I go with an Oil Temp guage instead of the Boost/vacume? If I go with a supercharger in the future I could then put the fuel pressure and Boost/vacume out on the cowl together ( I was told they should be together).

What help would having the Boost/vacume do for me in my N/A car 'now'..... isn't Oil temp more important? Also, I would have ordered the fuel pressure guage( electric- to keep inside the car without problem ) but there's a recall on that guage

these are all Auto-Meter Phantom guages.

thanks alot

If you're N/A, the boost/vacuum gauge will be of limited usefullnes.
I have an NA GT, and I installed the water temp, oil pressure and oil temp (all mechanical). I would suggest you go with the oil temp, though to warn you, for the most accurate value, the oil temp guage will have to go into the pan, which does require a little work.
