What do you monitor with your cts?

Couldn't exactly find this in the search function. Just received my edge back from edge I set it up to monitor engine temp (big display on left), egt (bottom middle display), and trans temp (right side large display. In the bottom left corner i have exhaust back pressure, bottom right is my boost. Any thoughts on this? Is there something more important i should be watching than one of those items?

Thanks Travis.

You could always have icp and duty cycle up there as well. I have my cts set up to show 8 pids at once. Not as cool looking but more to monitor.

I monitor corrected speed, oil temp, ICP, IPR, EBP, and I moved the IAT sensor to behind the front bumper so I can use it to see what the temperature outside is.
Also nice to be able to pull codes on the go.

Gauges for EGT, boost, tranny temp, fuel pressure, volts.

Still pretty slow, just less slow now.

Let's see if I can get them all by memory.

Corrected speed
And a variable.

The variable I use to monitor everything else that's not important, but matters to me at the time. Right now I'm watching IPW, I think. Just curious about what it does. This is the slot I use for random bs, but also the one I pay attention to most because I change it so often. The rest of them just interest me in "typical" numbers. I don't care about it until I see something I'm not expecting.
