What are the normal ranges on CTS Insight

What are the normal temp ranges and numbers for everything the CTS can monitor. Im talking more past the EOT and ECT I know them. I mean like to tell that your turbo is good and HPOP and so on.

That helped me with oil pressure but what about Barometric Pressure, ICP Pressure, Injector Pulse Width, Intake Air Temp, Mass Air Flow, TCC Duty Cycle, Variable Geometry Turbo Duty Cycle these are all things I cant seem to find any real info on

I'll do my best to break these down for you:
Barometric Pressure - atmospheric pressure, and I've never watched this. Monitored more to know what's going on outside.
ICP Pressure - Injector Control Pressure - This effecively you HPO press. Should sit around 550-650 at idle depending on tuning. Cruising anywhere from 1300-1600, and maxed out at 4,000 at WOT if memory serves.
Injector Pulse Width - this is the actual time your injectors are being opened at any particular speed. Again this varies upon throttle responce and the tuning your running, and during engine braking periods the injectors remain shut and will display zero.
Intake Air Temp - Intake temp - should be close to ambient air temps unless your stuck sitting in traffic. Monitored more to know what's going on outside.
Mass Air Flow - How much air your turbo is moving through the intake. Not something I watch for so I don't have a range for operation.
TCC Duty Cycle - Transmission Converter Lock - not something I watch.
VGT Duty Cycle - Turbo Vanes - again not something I watch.

It's a starting point for you however, as I come across more Info I'll post it up.

VGT% will range from 15%-85%. Under normal driving conditions it will be between 40%-60%. At idle it will be higher and WOT lower. I watch mine once in a while just to see how much movement I get. I don't know yet but I'm thinking that as the number moves less my turbo is starting to stick. I'm hoping to clean it sometime in the near future so I'll see after that if my numbers change.

Load% is another one I watch once in a while. Flat road at 35-40 mph I'm in the low 30's. When my rear caliper started sticking that number jumped to around 50% and a few times up to 60% on the same road.

Battery volts drop to around 11 cranking, close to 12 after starting and then 14 when the glow plugs are off. When the alternator went I saw close to 10 cranking and it never got above 12 after that.

There's another thread around her on this stuff... I wonder how long it will take me to find...
