Turn the rail pressure low warning alarm off. Select that gauge and it will allow you to customize the alarms, etc.
The most important gauges to watch are pre turbo EGT's (EGRTA), fuel rail pressure (FRP), engine coolant temp (ECT), engine oil temp (EOT), transmission fluid temp (TFT), and boost pressure (MGP).
I always let my EGT's drop down to 350-375 before I shut off during the summer time when it's super hot out, but during the cool weather I don't worry about it quite as much. As far as warm up, I like to wait until my EOT, ECT get up above 140-150 before I consider getting on it harder. TFT I like to be 115-120 before I consider getting on it hard.
