spartan egt and boost

Hey guys im sittin in my truck in the garage with my foot proped up on the door a beer in the cup holder and my dashdaq in my hand (im a happy guy right now thanks john) I did the ford parameter search deal but was wondering which one I should run for my egt sensor and which one for boost. I was planning on running trans temp, boost, and egt.

trans temp, boost, and egt are the most common that people will run. I have mine set up with a bunch of paramaets like, trans temp, boost, egt, fuel rail pressure, oil pressure and Malfunction inicator lamp.

I monitor EGT's, engine oil temp, engine coolant temp, fuel rail pressure, torque slip rpm, and a few others with the DashDAQ. I monitor trans temp and boost with my mechanical gauges.

Rudy maybe you can enlighten me. I don't understand some of the limits like oil temp, range is 230-limit 300. When mine hit 240 on my truck everyone said my oil was toasted and maybe even the transmission. Why is the high limit set at 300 instead of 240 or so?

High warning is what you want to watch out for. The high limit is just what the max the guage goes to, really does not mean anything.
