Normal Readings for Oil Temp, Coolant Temp, etc.

I'm sure a thread is out there with this info, and I'd appreciate if someone can point me to it. Looking for what acceptable range or normal readings are for (truck is all stock and I have no gauges):

Oil Temp

Coolant Temp

Fuel PSI

and any other key indicators I should be looking at.

This is taken from a previous post...

STOCK READINGS:
............................Normal...........Sever e Service........Alarm
Tranny Temp........150 - 195.............195 - 200.............220
Coolant Temp.......190 - 195..............195 - 210............215
Fuel Press..............60 - 50.................50 - 45..............45
EGT - pre Turbo......650 - 1200.........1200 - 1250.........1300
EGT - post Turbo.......700.....................900........... ....1000
Boost.....................0 - 26.................27 - 28...............28
Oil Temp................200 - 220............220 - 235............235

I highly recommend that you purchase something like the Edge Evolution. Mounts nicely to the corner of the dash. You can monitor all of the above values with the Edge except for Fuel Press. To do this you would have to purchase a manual gauge tapped at the fuel regulator.

Also another essential item (IMHO) for even a completely stock truck is a coolant filtration system. I purchassed mine from DieseSite. I've cut open the Baldwin filters and you would not believe the sand and particles flowing through the cooling system.
