need some duty cycle values and pressure readings please

Hey guys I've been lookin at getting some sort of scan tool to buy to use in diagnosing 7.3 and 6.0 psd in my own time in my personal shop, I'm currently demoing a mac taskmaster scan tool and it monitors everything and will perform injector buzz tests and koeo and koer test as well. So far I'm pretty impressed with it and I will be able to use it on many other vehicles if need be I had it hooked to my 06 6.0l tonight and was just wanting some nominal readings such as what my ipr duty cycle vgt duty cycle should be what my icp psi should be at different running conditions what my ficm voltage should be at cold idle and hard pulls etc etc. I just want to know some basic nominal psi, duty cycle numbers for critical information that I need to be watching. If anyone has suggestions on scantools or other diagnostic software that may be better or equivilent that may suit me better or for a better price please chime in.
