Installed Gauges. Help with my readouts

I just installed GlowShift A Pillar gauges: Boost, EGT, and Tranny Temp. I just wanted to get a comparison of what other people get for readings.

The truck is a 99 7.3 4x4 auto. Basically stock other than 4" exhaust and 4" Tymar intake.

Boost: Usually around 0-5lbs. Under heavy throttle, it gets up to 15 or so

EGT: Crusing, between 300-600. I've seen it get as high as 800

Tranny: Never gone higher than 140.

Those numbers are normal.

What color/tracer wire did you tap your constant power into? I have to turn on my headlights for my gauges to turn on, so the 12v constant is not right.

Thanks.

That's the way Glow Shift are. The gauge lights have to be on for the gauges to work.

I actually used an add-a-circuit in the fuse box. I believe I put it in the radio memory fuse.

I don't have to have the headlights on for them to work. They're always on. My only complaint is that they don't have any kind of dimmer. At night they're almost too bright.
