Gauges

Just got an insight and at the moment I monitor boost,egt,fuel rail pressure,eot, and tranny temp.

Should I be looking at MAP? Back pressure or anything else? My question is why is it important to monitor fuel pressure? And what is the dif. Between MAP and boost?
I would like to know what everyone monitors?

I think 4 of the best to monitor are eot, ect, egt and trans temp. I also monitor volts and boost as well.

I dont think the cts will monitor fuel rail pressure, its not on their list of parameters on their website and Ive never saw it on mine.

No problem dude, pretty sure the insight monitors as much important* stuff as the dashdaq. Always happy to help someone out! Btw how hard was the update? I'm hoping I can leave mine in the truck if I ever have to since its a pain to get out of my dashpod.
