which gauge question

Ok, so i purchased the DP Tuner infinity and am using it for gauges. This thing can read anything on the truck, my question us what should i be concerned with other than Trans temp, egt, boost pressure and why should i be looking at them? Any help would be great!

EGT under 1300, back out of the throttle if you hit there. Short bursts over are okay but extended temps above that can cause damage.
Trans I like to stay under 220. A little hotter may be okay, but too hit will cause damage. If tuned may need additional trans cooler. May not, depends on your needs.
Boost is mostly for fun. Can also see if you hit normal amount of boost. Have heard around 20 stock and 25 tuned.
