Boost max stock 28lbs i try and stay around 25lbs
Trans 140-165* keep under 180-200*
Pyro 1350* back off 1250-1300* ok but where did you install the pyro here.

Gauges Needed
Fuel pressure under 45lbs at WOT kills injectors
ECT-EOT max spread 15* i think at 10* your oil cooler is getting plugged

That's where my pyro is I can easily hit 1400 at WOT as I understand short burst like passing is fine any more then 30 seconds can cause heat issues. Towing up hill I'll hold it at 1200 max try not to go over 2500 rpm.

Always let it cool down to 350 turn off A/C and in park longest I've had to wait is 2 minutes average wait is 30sec

I put my pyro probe right in front of #8 cylinder. I actually think that the probe sticks down into the runner for #8. With my Extreme Street tune cruising @ 75, flat ground, my pyro runs about 800-850. WOT the highest I have ever seen is about 1500-1600 but that's @ about 120-130 MPH and you don't need to hold it there long at all.

My boost @ 75 mph usually runs about 4-6 PSI. WOT it will get up to 32 PSI right about the 100 MPH mark and usually stays right around there as speed climbs.

Trans temp cruising is about 150-160 and climbs a little with a good WOT run, not much though. Towing a 12K load it runs about 165-175. I also have a brand new tranny.

This is all with the Extreme street non-studded tune, and mods in sig.
