Preditor Diablo Sport without Gauges?

Love the site, been doing a ton of reading. Have a 2002 PSD and am looking to upgrade it. Got the tuner before i did alot of reading here and couldnt wait for gauges to install it. Have it set on 60hp setting currently. I ordered the filter for the DIY intake and the Walker BTM muffler and will be installing them when they come in. I am currently researching gauges and will be ordering them soon. Am i gonna get myself in trouble running the 60hp or 85hp tunes in my truck before i get these mods? The preditor manual says your ok as long as you dont run the 100hp+ tune. Let me know what you all think.

You should be fine as long as you're not staying wide open throttle for long periods of time. And if you're towing, don't lug the motor down, keep the rpms up.

I would suggest getting gauges as soon as you can though.

I had the predator programmer before getting T Wildman's custom chip. The 100+ hp program will get the EGT's hot so stay away from that until you get gauges. Be careful with the 85 hp tune also, she'll get the EGT's up there on a truck with the stock air box and mufler. with the 40 hp tow and 60 hp program you should be good, just do as RockinJW suggested until you get the gauges in.

Check engine light would most likely be from either an Overboost code or a low icp code.
