So i installed gauges today, egt, boost, trannie temp.
The question i have is that the boost gauge only reads when i accelerate with more than 3/4 throttle and then it only goes up to 12 psi. Is this right?? I jumped the boost gauge line onto the map sensor line but i have heard that you have to have it on the intake manifold? Not too sure what is the best...what about tapping into the top of the turbo housing? I also towed my flatbed today with maybe 3000 lbs on it and when cruizing at 60 mph i get no reading from the boost gauge at all unless i accelerate to change lanes or something. I am new to these gauges so not too sure what kind of readings i should be getting. Also, what is a safe trannie temp to run at? What about cruzing town or running up a mountain when it is 110 out with/without a load? Thanks for any insight!!
