I am thinking about putting in a triple pillar pod.
I have the factory saleen boost and intercooler water temp gauge on dash.
Would an additional 3 gauges on the pillar be to much?

I'd say go for it. There are plenty of things that can potentially go wrong - and one gauge can save your cars life.

I just got a triple pillar to monitor oil & water temps, plus vacuum. Meant to get the oil pressure, but it was a gift, can't complain.

I want to monitor the **** out of my car... Your boosted, you should as well.

I will say though. It is kind of hard to look at your gauges while flat out, lol.
I can usually glance at my wideband to make sure I'm not too lean but I'd rather pay attention to what is in front of me.
On a boosted car id say a wideband is probably the most useful.
I don't think water temp is terribly useful, as I've found that the temp gauge that ford does give you in the cluster actually will show hot if the car is getting hot. It isn't a dummy gauge like the oil pressure gauge.

Some guys like to clock their gauges so that the needle points straight up at normal reading. That way you can just kind of glance at them.
