8ball, really like that sound...could you give me a little more info on those beautiful digital console gauges (brand and sensors)...the stock outside temperature and torque are pretty much useless and the amp gauge, well its just in there. My R is also supercharged. I appreciate your time..
an ole grunt

There are all kinds of options; I went with GlowShift gauges because I was able to find all the gauges I wanted in matching colors.

Your are correct, there is little value in the incorrect outside temp gauge, the torque gauge with a 400 max is pointless with the Magnacharger and the OE volt gauge always showed 16v max on mine.

I always want a volt gauge plus I wanted to know my boost so I picked those two out of the three. For the third gauge pod gauge I picked a coolant temp gauge and installed a inline temp sensor in the output coolant line of the Magnacharger.
Considering the Magnacharger's coolant system has it's own independent 12 volt pump, coolant tank, and radiator; I am simply more comfortable knowing it's coolant temperature.
My thought is that I will notice if the temp runs higher than normal due to a weakening pump or low coolant etc.
Maybe it's just a daily driver precaution but I like it.

GlowShift Performance Gauges & Pods ? Automotive Boost Gauges, Pyrometer

Here are the gauges I picked (in Blue LED to match my Pioneer Stereo):
Volt Gauge: GlowShift 10 Color Digital LED Volt Gauge
Coolant Temp Gauge: GlowShift 10 Color Digital LED Water Temperature Gauge
Boost Gauge: GlowShift 10 Color Digital LED Boost/Vacuum Gauge
