if you ask me..i'd say oil temp, water temperature,boost and a/f ratio

without them..you'd end up with a overheated turbocharged engine with inconsistent air/fuel ratio and of course..a boost gauge with a turbo is elementary..

oil temperature gauge is a must for turbo's... its vital to know the temperature of the oil so that the oil cooler wil do its job to cool the oil to cool the turbo,

becausae turbo's generate heat and the compressed air cuased but the turbo is hot and the a/f ratio will help you keep your temperature's down by knowing how much to richen the air fuel mixture the cool the engine ..remember, a balanced rich mixture help's the engine from being too hot..

and why are you so into gauge's when you don't have a turbo? just asking
