I have the Insight CS. I nearly always run the 8 value display mode.

RPM,Gear/TCL
Boost,Battery volts, EGT
Coolant T, Oil T, Trans T

When Edge comes out with a pressure transducer, I'll drop boost or rpm and put oil & fuel pressure up.

The main thing everyone's gonna say is to watch coolant T versus oil T. Consensus is that oil T should not be more than 15° above coolant temp.
