Stock boost about 15-18 psi with a chip 22-25 psi. Egt's 1200-1250* is normal but cooler is better, can get up to 1400* for a short time anything over 1400* is time to be concerned and back out of the throttle unless you are racing or sled pulling but that is a whole new ball game. Fuel pressure should be approximately 65 psi at all times. If the fuel pressure drops below 50 psi while hard on the throttle for a extended period of time it's time to find out why.

I've never used the glow shift gauges but I have heard a lot of people are happy with them but just as many say don't waste your money on them. I got my Isspro EV's from here Isspro and Autometer Gauges He has really good prices on gauges and excellent customer service.

I was getting 15 psi stock and could hit 1100 degrees. With intake, exhaust, and Wildman chip I hit 18 psi and just over 1200 degrees towing up hard hills.
