So now what...

Well, I have my gauges on the way and now need to know what I'm watching for. Well not quite.

I get the boost gauge. You probably monitor that to keep boost low for economy or as a gauge to make sure you don't have leaks or other problems. Now on the pyrometer, what temperature range to you try to maintain? At what point do you back off or what not? Same with the trans temp. What's the normal operating range?

Ive always heard keep the trans under 200. Ive never seen mine get over 180. As far as boost. You should see from 2 to 7 crusing and at wot 15 to 25 depending on tuning. Keeping boost low helps econmy.
