ECT is labeled as"f*WT", it should be a stock gauge.

I do not know all of which gauges for Xgauges They pre-install for their customers.

Would help if you could post them up.

For every day running down the road. ECT,EOT, TFT, Vlts since you already have a boost gauge in the dash.

First start in the mornings, I put up FMP (FICM Main power) to keep an eye on it when cold.

Well, since you have a new gauge. First thing in the morning, everything cold, run through some gauges to make sure they are reading as close to the same as possible. The longer the truck is cold the better.

Check ECT-EOT-TFT They should read nearly the same. This will show you how accurate those are.

I usually check FICM when engine is cold and not plugged in with the heater cord a couple times a week.

That's a start.

Here is a thread post with some Xgauges and operating values for most of them.

The operating values posted are when engine is hot. (FICM shows at hot, but should be checked cold)

Some Sc II codes for "Xgauge" (Now injectors) - Page 12 - Ford Truck Enthusiasts Forums

FwT for coolant temp. This might help as well: Ford Specific XGauges : Linear Logic : Home of the ScanGauge

I like to have FWT, EOT, FICM, BST on mine! I also like to watch ICP pressure to see what kind of shape my high pressure oil system is on.

One day we might have to run into each other and compare some notes. I'm in Vancouver.

Happy New Year.
