Got gauges installed, normal readings?

Finally got pyro, trans temp and boost gauges installed and i'm gettin these readings:

Drivin around town ~40mph
EGT- 300-400 degrees
Tranny- 100 degrees

~60-70mph
EGT- 400-800 degrees
Tranny- 120 degrees
Boost- ~4 Psi

Under heavy acceleration-
EGT- up to around 1200 degrees before i backed off
Boost- up to ~20psi,

Boost won't move unless under acceleration or high rpms.

Are these about normal temps? Sounds about right to me from what i've read on here. The mods done on the truck are DIY intake, 4" Flopro Exhaust, Superchips tuner set on 'OFF Road' setting (highest).

Man, I wish i knew how everyone was getting these amazing fuel mileages with their trucks. Best I have seen was 15.9 with the cruise set on 65-70. at 80-85mph my mpg drops like a rock down to around 12-13. I am a CCSB 4x4 with 35's
