Livewire tuner question

Hey guys, I just got my new livewire tuner in today, I have it set on street and the power is unreal, but I am not able to find where the boost gage is, the only thing I see is air #/min. What is this and do I need to buy something else to display boost pressure? Thanks for your help answering my stupid questions....

Oh I bet I know what your missing. Find a pid on your display you dont want, double tap it, that will bring up a list you can pick from, and set values for that pid as well.

The best investment by far for your truck would be to get a custom tune. They can be had for $40-$100 dollars. It will add power, fuel mileage, and even help your tranny. It is easy to load up on your tuner.

Here is a link to one of my favorite tuners:
https://www.trucksourcediesel.com/tsd-tunes/


The "canned tunes" that come on the sct device are not very good quality. You can mess with the shifting points but do it at your own risk. The custom tuners do all that for you and will also change about 20 other things that is not possible with just the sct tuner

Agreed, I tried the can tunes and a few other "basic" tunes but my Power hungry performance "PHP" custom tune from Bill is by far the best money spent.

So i finally got my egt probe from jms chips in and installed it this weekend. I understand that it don't read accurate until the exhaust temp is over 200 but mine isn't reading over about 80 or 90. I have driven the truck oven an hour with no change. I am beginning to wonder if i have a defective probe. Has anyone else had a similar problem?
