I don't have mine yet either, but I'm eyeing Fuel Economy (instant), Engine Load, Throttle Position, and possibly one of the add-a-guages like Trip/Tank Economy.

I'll definitely be checking out horsepower and intake temperature while playing with different mods to the car to find that right balance between power/performance and reasonable economy.

Unfortunately, as interesting as the past couple weeks on this forum have been and functional some of my mods have been, they haven't quite outweighed the years I've spent on performance-oriented forums. I bought my car for utility first, performance (fun to drive) second, and economy third. I have slowed down, but I dont really see myself making mods like a HAI that will decrease the available power when I want it. Though, I am willing try it out and check out the economy/performance gains/losses. Ditto on my cat-back exhaust vs. the stocker which I still have.
