Your biggest temps you need to monitor are your EOT and ECT... IDK if that monitor can do it, but if it can, those are the biggest... If your deleting your EGR, you shouldn't have to big of a problem with it.. but its still good to monitor them.

Uhhh... Wait... What...

I have the same tuner and all I use it for is EGT's. You really need a fuel pressure gauge for this truck, especially now that you are running tunes on it. I installed mine in the flip down tray to the right of the steering wheel. I didn't want it to get stolen. The only time I power it up is when I am towing or playing.
