My tranny temps usually runs between 150-190, depending on what I am using it for. Towing it usually stays between 180-190. The boost pressure is electronically controled on my truck and I usually see constant 30-32psi under full pressure and it will spike to 35. Hope this helps.

Are you talking what are the maxes you wanna see on the gauges??

Boost: 45 psi (stock) and then your turbo is not very efficent
EGT sustained max 1250, spike max 1600
Tranny keep it under 200*

My Trans Temp runs about 140* (Sender in the pan)
Boost pressure will vary depending on throttle and load.
EGTs with your setup if you are running a stock turbo will be out of control.
