My mini maxx is set to display
EGT
Boost
EOT
ECT

in that order.
I usually have the real time display on the right side on boost. It moves the most - the others are subtle movements.

I believe you can view fuel pressure. Not to be a jerk but if you go on H&S and read the unit descriptions and the instructions you can learn alot.

Yea, no jerkin here either, but I looked at the manual briefly before installation. I think it does a good job of describing how to program the 3 monitored paramaters that are displayed numerically on the left side. You can then choose which one of those 3 you want to show with the real time display on the right side.
