If you want to save money and get a good filter, research the DIY intake which uses the 6637 filter. There have been MANY posts regarding places to purchase them for a very good price. It's the filter many here, myself included are using.
As far as gauges go, a good set shouldn't cost more than $400 or so and they definitely aren't hard to install yourself. Another money saving tip, start learning how to do all the things yourself. Labor these days is very expensive. Besides, just about everyone here will be more than happy to help you out when they can. You may even think about putting your location under the account settings so if there is anyone close they might be willing to stop by and help.
