Turbo Boost

I took a trip to pick up some equipment with my goose-neck about 1000 mile round trip. 18k total gross. I am still using the crap gages in the dash.Were do most of you run the boost pulling a 6 percent grade?Is there a happy medium that you hold it at?I was in tow haul at 55 mph 23 to 25 on boost & 2500 rpm and still had to room pull it higher, very easy to red line your boost.Trans temp stayed in the middle also water.Got get them gages, undecided to go with analog or commander.Just want to get an idea were it should be at.I no I no get the gages.:bonk:

Gauges are not a big deal until you do performance mods. At stock levels the factory programming will not allow the engine enough fuel to run the EGT up even close to a harmful level. Coolant and tranny (if it' an auto) temps are what you need to watch. The factory tranny gauge leaves a lot to be desired. Mine appears to be there for looks only!

just to show you.....

I was 4 wheeling at Velano Beach and my trany temps were up to 290' but the stock gauge never moved. I would definately get a trany temp gauge and maybe even a water temp. It is good to know exactly how hot you are running if you ask me.

boost

I have the bully dog outlook monitor. Pretty happy with it but the screen is pretty small and sometimes hard to read. The highest my boost has ever registered was 34 psi, but Im not sure what the red line is.
