EGT's - Max should be 1250 and only for a short time. Normal driving around 500-700 depending on if the truck is chipped or not.

Boost - If truck is stock max is around 14 lbs, if chipped around 25-30 but stock turbo doesn't like more than around 25 for too long.

Trans temp - Should be around 80 degrees higher than the ambient temp.

Fuel pressure is around 60-75 at idle if I remember correctly, not sure about under load.

For fuel pressure you are looking for 60psi +/- 10 psi. Each truck has its own sweet spot so if you can adjust it accordingly. The fuel pressure should stay constant whether at idle or at WOT, if not you need to upgrade your fuel system if you have mods or if your stock start trouble shooting

Got the gauges installed. Last night going to dinner was running down the interstate around 70-80mph outside temp was around 90-95F fuel was reading 60psi, tranny was reading 160, Egt was reading about 800. Boost wasn't reading so I'm going to check the line on it to make sure I didn't kink it or anything.

Fixed the boost tube gauge reads zero unless I'm over 2000 rpm then the most I've seen is 5psi. Hooked up the SCT and used the datalog monitor feature and it showed the same thing max of 5psi. Any thoughts where to start my mods are in sig the SCT is set on the performance tune.
