SCT Livewire please help!

Okay I purchased the sct Livewire tuner and I want to set up the alert light for everything so I don't harm my motor. I need to know what I shouldn't go over for these things. Boost psi,coolant temp, injection timing, intake air temp, manifold absolutef, trans temp 1 and 2,(IDK why but there are two) and egt...? Thanks in advance guys.

I'm addicted to diesel and I step on it constantly!

my opinion...

boost at 30psi
egt's at 1100
ect at 205 (you should have both ect and eot so you can monitor for oil cooler failure)
tranny 190

the manifold is the same as boost... plus 14.7 (atmosphere) i think??

I can too, pending tune and driving, but for safe limits on a stock motor those numbers are high. i don't like my egt's going near 1400.. but they have

All the above is true.

30psi is a good place to stop... especially on stock HG!



EGT... well lets say my gauge goes up to 1600*



My needle like to lay down and take a rest on the pin constantly... hehe

Thanks man!



The way I did it involved some fab work... now thinking back to it I realize that i really did not need to do all that work.

So here is a link to my write up and for the future you can make it work without the steel plates/brackets and just screw the inner foglights right into the chrome part of the bumper on the bottom where i have the long stip of steel plate.
