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...
00' F350 CC DRW still pushing well past 300K: 6637, GTP38R, 5.6k mod on turn dial, superchips, trans command, Torque pro on Galxy S2 for PID monitor, OD lock, 4" straight pipe, condensor cooler w/electric fan, watersprayed intercooler, 08' taillights, 05' headlights, BD valve body kit, all door locks foiled, full LED exterior light kit, and the list is still growing.
