Standard operating temperatures - what to watch on your gauges

Team I have been searching and found different threads with different info on standard operating temperatures for our trucks and the window of "normal temps" that are ok but I cannot seem to find all of the info I am looking for. I like many others have a new monitor setup and can watch all sorts of stuff but where do we find what is "normal"?
Do we have a thread or sticky I have missed giving us parameters to stay within? (I.E. Trans temp, HPOP psi, injector pulse width...)
If not can we get together and make a good list showing as much as possible for reference?

I have been searching not only on the .org but also all over the internet and have gotten some of the info I was looking for so here goes for reference:

P.S. Please correct me if I have any misinformation!

ECT = 160*-200* is normal 210* is cautious and 220* is dangerous
EOT = within 10*+/- of ECT at all times, if greater than 10* warmer possible oil cooler problems and/or stoppage and low oil level
Trans = 160*-180* is normal 200* is cautious and should be only reached when towing not during normal unloaded driving and 225* is dangerous you should stop the vehicle.
HPOP = 500 psi during cranking, 2600psi +/- on WOT intial jump and maintain 2200psi once stabilized. To test the HPOP: FLOOR the pedal, and stay in it, 100% from ~60-90mph...what you're likely to see (on the scantool) is that the ICP will spike up rather quickly, to 2800-3000psi or so, and then the longer you stay in the pedal...the ICP will slowly drop and drop and drop...the ICP will eventually stabilize (stop dropping). If your truck can maintain 2800+psi then you are one of the FEW folks that have a terrific HPOP.

I would estimate that 90% of the Power Strokes can only maintain ~2200(+/- 200)psi of HPOP pressure, or ICP...5% are above 2600, the other 5% are below 1900psi...
