i have one and it did help, can get a bit smokey though.
i would add guages to that list too, after that you can play with the pump and not worry about hurting your motor.

i would definately get a pyro, other than that i like a boost guage and if you have an auto a tranny temp guage.
all three should be under $300 for good ones, Isspro or Autometer, i wouldn't waste money on cheap ones.

We did my son's Denny T pin pretty easily. You can do yourself a little favor, as well, when you get those 4 external cover screws out of the AFC housing, just replace'em with some same-threaded TORX screws. They'll be easier to work with, if you feel the urge to get back in there. .... be careful with that banjo fitting that connects the intake manifold to the side of the injection pump. That little piece of stiff aluminum tubing isn't very forgiving. Fortunately, it's also not magic. If you break it, you can simply replace that whole piece with a couple of hose-barbs and neatly-clamped tubing.

geddy's uncle's Sig:My truck: "Tiny" '98 QC LB 2500 12-valve, G56, hybridized t-case (long story).
Son's truck: "Da Beast" '90 RamCharger, 12-valve from a '92, NV4500/NP205, matched D-60s, RhinoCoat inside and out.
Daughter's baby beast: '06 Liberty CRD, nearly bone-stock except for an oil-mist trap between the "hockey puck" and the turbine inlet's airhorn

Yup.... This build was a very thorough nightmare but it turned out SAWEEET! The wiring-wizard kid at the place where most of the work was done actually built a complete dashboard. Aftermarket speedometer, fuel-guage, oil pressure, water temp, boost and pyro all in the panel where the OEM stuff used to be, on a nice piece of matte-black thick plastic inset. Looks like it was born that way. They're all round/retro-looking. If I've got a pic stored on this computer, I'll post it.

Gauges are nice but I ran 4 turns on the pump with a Denny T 2 and BD 40hp injectors. No gauge, then I got one and on a 90 degree day the hottest I could get was 1200* but pump tunes can vary a lot

I wouldn't risk it and get at least a pyro gauge... It's a whole lot cheaper than melting something..
