Glowshift Gauges

I just installed Glowshift gauges. EGT, EOT, volts. I was wondering what i should set my high warning light to for the EGT, and EOT. I have read several posts and have not found consective numbers. I have a S/C flashpaq programmer, the EGR is deleted and its got a brand new oil system. Thanks.

Umm.....200*EOT is pretty low and normal temp....Are you thinking tranny temp?

I think 240* EOT is more realistic, she defuels on her own at like 253*

Me neither, except when I had a clogged oil cooler....But Plenty of guys run their oil temp up to near the limit when towing grades in high heat areas. There's a good thread on it around here somewhere by that guy with the lifted black CC w/'08 front end.

Also, he didn't say what his voltage gauge monitors. But if it did FICM, 47 is acceptable intermittently so I'd set it to 46-46.5.

My EGT gauge reads temps ranging from 400 to 2200. And when im parked and at idle it reading at the 400 mark and if i give it some throttle the needle doesnt move. But when im driving and throttle it the gauge moves like it is supposed . Im puzzled. Is it cause at idle im below 400 degrees? And because the motor is under a load it doesnt go over 400 degrees? What is the average EGT at an idle? Thanks..
