engine parameters before mods

Hey guys, I am looking to buy a TS chip for my truck and want to make sure all engine systems are up to the task of handling the extra stress before hand. So i'm looking for stock info on oil and fuel pressures as well as any other parameters I should check before install. I replaced all the injectors a few months ago, installed intake and exhaust, compression is within tolerance. This truck is my work truck and weighs just shy of 11,000 lbs so i'm not buying the tuner to hot-rod just looking for another 50 hp for towing and fuel economy and a high idle tune for my air compressor. I remember reading a thread a few months back with the info I'm looking for but cant find it now. Thanks for your help

Most you will see with any chip is 40-50HP max...so its not going to tax your motor or trans.

Thats right with stock sticks. And Id recomend gauges first of any mod or chip to monitor your motor anyway.
