Guages Installed/Temp Boost Readings

Sorry for no pics, dont have a digital camera yet. Anywyas just got my Dipricol guages installed and was just wondering if these numbers are normal. Boost: 20-22 psi, Trans: just over 100 ( im in minnesota and its cold here right now) EGT's 1000 at WOT, and about 600-650 when cruising at 70. Thanks in advance!!

Looks good

Boost seems a touch high without any tuning but I could get about 20PSI with the wastegate hose disconnected

Yep like dave says looks good except for the boost might be a tad bit high. The trans temp normally will be 60-80 degrees above ambient temps without a load or towing somthing

I see about 19-20 Stock...My EGT's with the Chip on go through the roof though, At the end of the 1/4 mile, I'm seeing 1400-1500 degrees...(I've seen em hit 1600 for about 5-6sec) I know, I'm flirtin with disaster!!!

EGT's are not a problem in the 1/4 mile because it's not long enough for the pistons to get heat soaked.
Back to the OP, you're numbers look fine except for Boost, are you sure you have no other performance mods? A stock tuned truck will usually put out between 15-17lbs of boost. Trans temps should be 70-90 above ambient, the low side when not towing and the upper when towing heavy, I will probably not see my trans gauge move again til Spring, unless I'm towing.

You did put the pyro in before the turbo and not in the down pipe didn’t you? Those boost numbers do seem high for a completely stock truck but the egt seems right for stock if it is preturbo, mine hits 1500 pretty quick.
