Gauge benchmarks

I was wondering if someone had some medians that i could compare my gauge readings to so that I could "keep an eye on the gauges" on my Livewire. I've got the gauges and am running the performance canned tune on the livewire and everything seems to be in check, even when I run it hard, there are alot of PIMs that i have no clue about.

From what i read i should be keeping the EGTs to below 1250* sustained

EOT and EOC within 15* (mine are hovering around this difference sometimes and other times both at 178* sustained periods)

Voltage should be at 14V (sometimes my battery light goes on but my voltage is a steady 14v)

Fuel pressure should be 60 psi at idle and 45psi + at WOT (guage on the way)

Tranny is around 160*

What other info should I keep an eye on every now and then to make sure engine is in check?

Thanks, got some new tunes from Matt on the way and want to make sure I can enjoy them to the maxx.

If you are seeing 178* you have a problem, and the problem is a stuck open t/stat the ECT should read around 190-192* and the EOT around 194-196* with a max difference of 15*
Others about right

Thanks Stroker, I'll take a look at that. It has seen temps up to 190, but for brief periods of time. I thought my truck took a while to warm up. Thanks for checking out my numbers.
