I'd like to redo my gauges this winter (because. Have none and its driving me nuts)

Thinking of

Oil pressure
Rpms
Volts
Water temp

Don't need the trim tilt (ill just turn around n look at the dam thing)
Don't need speedodometer because. Have a GPS n it's not that mportant to me.

What am I missing?

It's a 1998 Evinrude 200

Oil pressure? Must be a 4 stroke. Looks like you have it all covered. I have been using Faria gauges. They work fine and are much less expensive than the OMC gauges. Some guys have a water pressure gauge to indicate if they are pumping water. Also you might want to consider a Flo-Scan unit or equivalent, but that's just an option to think about. Also I would normally say an hour meter, but being used......who knows.

Water pressure is a must. You will see that gauge drop way before it overheats or an alarm comes on. It has saved me in the past

Faria is local(CT) so that's a good choice.
