You may have to program in the Xgauges. The ones from BPD come preloaded with the Xgauges for the 6.0L.

I like to watch FICMMP, EOT, FWT(coolant temp),ICP pressure. But its as easy as a push of a button to scroll thru all the options of things you can monitor.

Ford Specific XGauges : Linear Logic : Home of the ScanGauge

There are what they call Xgauges that are specific data streams for different makes of vehicles. You can take the Scangauge and hook it to a Prius and get battery temp with the Xgauges. Or in this case programm the Xgauges for the Ford 6.0L.

Not sure what software comes with the Scangauge... Usually its just plug and play. Did you see the link I posted, maybe that will answer the questions? The Scangauge should just be plug and play.
