I know I need a pyro, and my truck monitors trans temp on the dash, wanna watch my differential temp, and boost. The question I got is what I am watching for? I got the PPE Economy and XDP said not to put in the second level without a Pyro. I just got it on the 40HP setting, but have heard the economy acutally comes on the higher settings. I know the pyro is 1300 degrees, but the dif temp, and boost gauges I know zero about. I know I should have them though, and they look pretty cool too. What are proper, or should I what I am watching for on the boost and dif temp gauges???Also I always heard 180 degrees on the tranny temp, but I heard the allision is capable of getting hotter. Always heard the belts start melting at 180 degrees. I also have to be honest I haven't noticed much if any gain from the PPE in level 1. I have a new K&N Air Filter on the way. Hoping to put some gauges in and crank it up a notch for more economy. Thanks

The diff inst a very popular gauge to do, the boost wont be needed unless you add a huge tune. The only one needed is a Pyromter. If your EGT's go past 1350 the heads could start to warp. :rolleyes:
