It would be nice if somebody with some authority on the answer could post the ranges of all the monitored features and what they mean...but answer oiredcres's first

Baro, MAP and EBP(late build) should all read very close to each other with the key on, engine off. Somewhere around 14.2psi is good

within +/- .2 should be okay

that's a good check of sensor functionalitly. those aren't really pids you'd be watching all the time while running

I have mine set up with the analogue display and I have mine set up with the following:

(These are all unloaded temps, pulling and grades will cause changes)
EOT -> Should stay below 230*
ECT -> Delta should be less than 15* of the EOT (typically will be higher) driving on level ground at 65 mph after reaching "normal" operating temps (ECT > 190*)
FICM -> Should read 48v at KOEO, cranking and at idle
TFT -> Should stay below 220*
ICP -> Should be greater than 500 psi at all times

Some of the other options available for showing include the MPG's, Boost, Speedo, etc

I haven't played around with all of the settings and options yet as I've only had mine about a week but that's what I've got my "alarms" set at in my CTS so if I go above them it'll start screaming at me.

Mine baro is at 14.4. Im watching my ect, eot, ficm volts and battery volts. My truck doesnt seem like its up to full power, but it may be me. So i was going to try and monitor some sensors to make sure they are working correctly
