What are your gauges reading

Hey guys,

About to order an innovative tune and am also ordering gauges. I havent decided on which ones yet. Im thinking EGT, trans temp, water temp, and fuel pressure. I think my stock boost will be fine (i think.. what are your thoughts)

but once i get all these gauges, what do you guys see on your rigs? I just wante to know what i will be seeing.

My truck is a 2006 f250 6.0 all stock except for a 4in exhaust.

Thanks,
Jon

Those gauges are perfect for a 6.0 Or you could get an Edge Insight that monitors everything. lol

Under normal driving conditions with the x-race from Innovative I don't see over 800*-850*. I've hit 1600* once for about 2-3 seconds but I was racing and did a boosted launch. I've never hit over 180* on the trans. temp. even pulling 16k-18k. The stock boost gauge will be just as accurate as an aftermarket gauge so you should be good, just don't trust the stock trans. temp. gauge.
