What should i monitor on my lml???

Hey guys, I am getting some gauges but dont know what to monitor. I am deffinetly getting boost and pyro. I am not doing a lot of towing. there are no mods, but in the future i will be doing stuff. I have a mini maxx off road tuner, just waiting to install it. So what should i monitor for my lml??? fuel pressure? oil pressure? trans temp? oil temp?

coolant temp ( since the factory gauge is faux), fuel pressure (desired and actual), maybe trans gear....I use the DIC for trans temp myself.

yeah i noticed the DIC has trans temp. but if i am not really towing, and it is all stock, do i need to worry about monitoring that stuff like oil and fuel and coolant?

ya , sell the tuner you have or trade with someone for an XRT unlocked, with some cash maybe and spend a little out of pocket and you have a programmer and the nice big Insight CTS monitor!

if you trust people to make transactions like that
