          I've got a boost gauge and a voltometer gauge which is easy just wire it up to earth and live of the back of the radio as for a oil temp one you'll have to run a wire off the oil temp sensor on most cars they are located on the sump but have been under there a number of times and not seen it must be on the back of the block somewhere. steve

            I'm thinking about doing a boost and temp. Only thinking lol but if I do I'll do a How to. Too much on at the moment!

            Like yourself I'm not happy driving the car without knowing the temp, wouldn't like to damage the engine and can't be bothered with pressing buttons everytime to get the temp up on the screen!

                        why is it important? same as the people that fit oil pressure gauges... you would know straight away if you had lost oil pressure!

                        im sure as this is a canbus based car, that an electronic oil pressure gauge could be rigged up by OBD II ?
