CTS Monitor number's?

Received my new CTS monitor, did the install and wen't for a drive. I read the stickey on where things should be so here is what I am seeing.
FICM ran at 47.5-48.0
Boost 22-24
Now for the part that has me concerned!
ECT ran 184 ish no mater if I floored it or just drove normally.
EOT gradually worked it's way to 199 with a max of 200. This was after flooring it a couple times and then just driving a short time in town. The EOT appeared to start to come down after driving in town. I am afraid the ECT/ECT delta will exceed the 15* spread while running at speed or even more while towing. I don't know where danger zone is and also I have an extended power train warranty and I don't know if this is something that would be covered.

This is on an 04 with a EGR block off spool and cat removed. I also have a super chips tuner set on performance tune currently.
Any ideas or thought's.

Ditch the super chip tuner and get sct with custom tunes. As for ect and eot, need to run a constant speed 55-65mph on a flat round to get accurate readings for your deltas

Thanks guy's, I will do a little more legit testing tomorrow. What should this truck run for boost stock. It looks to be at 22-24 LB according to the CTS?

Your ect is low, mine was the same way. I changed the thermostat and it runs at 190, like it is supposed to. Change your thermostat, perform the correct delta procedure. If you want the monitor to serve it's intended purpose. Boost looks right. Check icp.

Not to hijack but I just recently put a new thermostat in and I'm only seeing 182-184. 186 if I run it hard. Why are my temps so low?

Motorcraft, 190? I believe there are diff temp ratings, you may have one with a lower rating. Check your cold soak temps, your sensor may be off a few degrees.

^agree change that thermostat. Boost might be a little low i can hit 28psi without really trying to hard. Maybe someone can correct me if im wrong but if its an early 04 it has an 03 turbo do they build less boost?

Your right, 26-28 is normal. I'm used to mine, it's low, my turbo needs to be cleaned. Lol.
