Default Replacing gauges

Having owned the Paj for a month now and I feel Iím not really utilising the gauges, altimeter, inclinometer and outside temp.

Iím looking at replacing them with a couple of dual SAAS trax gauges.

Oil pressure/water temp
EGT/voltage
However Iím unsure of the 3rd gauge? Oil temp or transmission temp?
If you guys could give me your opinions..?

I was also looking at a water depth/sounder gauge, however this seems a tall order and from research I think the sonar transducer needs to be continuously submerged..?

Thanks again for your help

in the same boat - I have a dual volt guage and I am keeping the compass outside temp one but my wrd is going to be an AFR wideband one(I have a petrol with a supercharger and tune)

So my options for you are volts, oil temps, maybe a tire pressure monitor or simliar



edit....
I see you have volts in the dual gauge setup

Keep the in/out temp as you will find that useful, and donít you have a v6? The EGT gauge is a bit pointless.

Yeah I do and I thought thatís a good thing to know from reading up on whatís the best gauges to have!
I just have the outside temp gauge on mine, and I feel itís temperamental due to the temperature increasing when driving! So the accuracy isnít all there.

I wonder if there is a tire pressure gauge..?
Is transmission oil worth it?

I'm just a dreamer, but my suggestion would be a Redarc dual voltage gauge:

Yeah I got told that too, am pretty keen on the dual gauges so you get more monitoring potential per gauge.
EGT is mainly for diesels. I also got told voltage isn't that important either?
TBH if im to keep my ambient temp gauge, which im quite dubious of the accuracy when in traffic, unless I need to change or relocate a sensor? Plus mine only does outside temp I think? however im not 100% sure.
Im tempted to go for SAAS dual trap oil pressure/water temp and oil temp as an individual one then keep the thermometer I have.
Interested in your thoughts

my ambient has been within 1 deg of the local readings from BOM every time I have checked... yes driving can make it a little funky but I dont take much notice while driving.

Voltage is important if you go camping etc - My dual volt gauge has been invaluable and I would not be without it. it tells me when I need to check batteries or change them (cycling up and down in voltage too quick) and when I had a faulty alternator - yes there is a lamp but it was not as helpful with the situation when it failed as the volt meter --- I was stuck in traffic (over 2 hours to do 4kms) on the local freeway and I flicked to my dual batteries and was actually able to monitor my voltages and flick back and forward as the alternator stopped and started working.... worst part it was night and dumping rain..... and the traffic hold up was a bush fire of all things

These are the ones I brought and should fit with minimal mods.

Additional to the above, 52mm gauges require a besel to be printed, which I wish I had known before that 60mm gauges existed! So thanks to those talking about dual gauges I found some 60mm dual gauges so now I don't need a SAAS side pod.
