Doesn't the 12V have an accurate oil and temp gauge on the dash?I would consider fuel pressure over those two.

The water temp is accurate, I have the stock gauge and a mechanical one. The oil pressure is the thing that is an idiot, always showing 40 when it varies a lot if you hook up a real gauge. Fuel pressure is an idea though not really a 12V concern, but definitely neat to watch and find when the overflow valve/fuel pump/clogged fuel filter conditions are occurring. The redneck way to notice is just by feel, mine will even cease to smoke if any of those 3 things go bad. Right now I have EGT, indoor (in vent)/outdoor (zip tied to air filter for actual intake temp so I can see it compared to actual ambient), boost, water temp. Water temp is identical to the one on the dash so skip that one.

May sound weird, but I've often wondered why there is never an A/C freon pressure gauge.

I've actually wanted something like that too. But it would be a little interesting if it sprung a leak.

oil pressure, oil temp, egt, fuel pressure, water temp.In that order more or less.You can get one of the new fancy digital gauges and monitor 25 million channels through your one extra gauge spot.

I would do a fuel pressure or oil pressure gauge if it was me.

I concur. but having beat the snot out of a 12v, I'd go OP if it were me.
