Just after some quick advice.


With a turbo falcon what guages do you need to keep an eye on things? I already have an s-pac dash so that covers me for tacho, volts, oil pressure and temp...

I was thinknig Boost and Fuel Pressure?

I would like an AFR guage aswell but ford racing dont sell those guages and i want to keep them all the same.

If Ford Racing aren't selling the ones you want, you should try summitracing and have a look for some autometer perhaps. They should have all the guages you could want in almost every series they have.
Or are you set on the Ford Racing ones?

Thats correct, but what ECU eed-250 going to be running. Even then hardly any of them are dash or window mountable, so are still kinda pointless unless for tuning purposes, or an occasional glance.

A turbo timer isn't a gauge.

Boost/vac is a must.

If you trust ford's electronic oil press gauge then go with it. But, some sort of oil pressure reading is a must IMO.

Unless you're fitting wideband o2 sensor, dont bother with the AF gauge...

Fuel pressure will be handy if you're running an FMU. But that's an expensive gauge... unless you're keen to run a mechanical external.... (internals with isolators cost a bucketload).
