(The previous aircraft I flew on used EGT (exhaust Gas Temp) as an indicator)It is needed to have at least one engine temperature indicator to asses engine problems.

Just a small add on question: what do you guys use as a parameter for your initial power setting? I always use the fuel flow because I find it the most stable one...just curious
