What should I monitor on mt dashDaq?

I just got the DD unit and I want to set up to monitor, but I am not sure what each description measures. Is there a chart somewhere that shows what all of the information available is useful for?

Here is what i want to see:

EGT (best location?)
Turbo Boost
Oil temp
Throttle position (percentage of throttle use)
Coolant temp
anything else I need to know???

Any help is appreciated.

Make sure you download the newest firmware update. It has pre turbo egt. Also get the new config file that is out and once loaded you will be able to monitor almost anything...If you are having problems, send me a pm. I will be glad to help you out

Which one is the pre-turbo EGT sensor? I see three different EGT sensors, but for me they all read around 450 degrees during normal driving (not getting on it). I have the new firmware, but I don't see anything on the Spartan site about a separate config file. Can anyone on the org point me in the right direction?

Just load Matt's config file. It has each gauge page preconfigured with the sensors and high warning values set.
