if your trans temp goes near 210 take it easy 250 from what i heard is when major damage happens

exhaust is to be around 600-800 highway cruising about 200-350 idling dont let this go above 1600 for an extended period of time

and boost im not sure, i think the wastegate opens at like 23 pounds

Don't let it go past 1300 for extend time.

I see 400 to 600 around town, 700 to 800 uphill. and I have a 4in exhaust but I 5 won't run much cooler unless you have 450hp or more

Tranny temp don't let it go over 190 for safety.
