What gauges are you running, what is needed? I'm doing boost and IAT(intake air temp), anything else needed? And can u download different gauge backgrounds? I'm running the 5 star 93 performance tune, and loving it!

Knock is your worst ememy.. That is detontion in the cylider at the wrong time. There is plenty of info about it on the net.

dont fell like a retard you just didnt know.. Now you know
knock can come from to much timing, to much boost, not right octane of fuel, bad knock sensor etc etc

Ya I look in there and there's nothing about Knock, the gauges I get to choose are 08 ford gas and up, is there an ecoboost section I need to download or something?

I see that there are many different gauge set ups. How do you pick and choose the exact ones you want and where you want them??

The 08+ doesn't have knock. You will have to make your own configuration file using the Livelink software to add it. Be aware that in the 08+ file you can read boost in psi but if you make your own new one boost will be shown in KPA. If you don't know how to make your own config file go over to the Southern Speed Inc website, and under Technical you can download a config already made for the ecoboost.

I also monitor A/F ratio on mine. As far as EGT's go you can't monitor that unless you buy an external probe and drill and tap your exhaust manifold to install it.
