Hi, I would like to know if some of you has started a file or list on what would be "normal readings" from the scangauge for our 6.0. That would be very interesting to monitor our engine, what a wonderful toy this Xgauge. Next year I am planning a trip to Alaska, in the middle of nowhere, I can tell if someting starts to go wrong and get it fix before it happen.
For example, not much now, but for mine:
ICP = 600 at iddle
1300 at 60 MPH
EOT = 180
Water temp: 183
FMP: 47.5 to 48
F350 Lariat, 6.0, crew cab diesel, 8 foot box, 2006, SRW, 4x4, 2" front puck, scan gauge II, Rotella ELC, Coolant filter, Adjustable Ranchos, Rear adjustable Air lift, Rear sway bar, on order blue spring, stc.
BLade my ipr hot 21.7 close to yours, my ICP 641-642
2003, 250 XLT cc 4x4 sb 6.0 mods,scan gauge2, coolant filter, the blue spring,and hypertect max energy on stage 1 only,high idle mod,stock down pipe 4inch straight pipe ,no kitty ,welded egr cooler, new oil cooler and that bad **** 03 turbo whistle free mod DAVID
I would love to see some "Techs" chime in with what "they" want to see in a "normal" Reading for these gauges. And maybe some readings that we don't want to see.
I drive the same stretch of I-205 in Oregon on the way home everyday.
My ECT runs 188-191
EOT runs 194-197
TFT runs about 155-158
If you go through that video I did, you can see a lot of my readings, which were right at 60 MPH. At the beginning it wasn't all the way up to temp. At the end you will see different readings at "hot".
Well, what I received from cheezit is a great start.
I don't think we need a lot of us showing what each of our trucks are doing at any given time. What we need , I think, is where Ford says each of our gauges "should" be reading.
I will be working on this this coming week, (some way to spend a vacation huh?)
here some operating values. if you need help in sypher let me know.

Below I have added to the list of Xgauges Fords specs for most of the gauges. There are a couple I may need Scangauge to look at and fix. Some are blank and I need to figure more out.
KO=KEY ON LI=LOW IDLE HI=HIGH IDLE OR=OPERATING RANGE
FICM Vehicle Power (Volts) (Should be 12 Volts, should not drop below 10.25 for more than 60 seconds, or 9.0 for 4 seconds. TSB 09-24-03)
KO=12.0 LI=14.0 HI=14.0 OR=10.5-15.5
FICM Logic Power (Volts) (Should be 12 volts)
KO=12.0 LI=13.5 HI=13.5 OR=10.5-15.5
FICM Main Power (Volts) (Should be 47-48) Your FMP should never dip below 45. If it does, your FICM is toast and needs repaired or replaced.
KO=47 LI=47.5 HI=47.5 OR=40-52 (yes, that is what it says from Ford)
EGR Valve Position Measured (%)
Note: MEASURED EGR Valve Position, in %, where a low value indicates a closed EGR valve (0 EGR flow), and a high value indicates an open EGR valve.
MAP is a standard gauge - but this XGauge is actually better than the standard one. It has a larger range which was needed because the standard gauge tops out around 37 psi absolute (about 22 lbs of boost), which diesels have no problem doing. This one should read well beyond 22lbs of boost.
With a little tweaking you can adjust this to read boost as you said.
To do this, just plug in the MAP code - get a reading from it with the key in the on position but the engine off, then based on the reading changed the last 4 digits of the MTH to whatever corresponds to your reading on this table
14.0 -- FF74
14.1 -- FF73
14.2 -- FF72
14.3 -- FF71
14.4 -- FF70
14.5 -- FF6F
14.6 -- FF6E
14.7 -- FF6D
14.8 -- FF6C
14.9 -- FF6B
15.0 -- FF6A
So, for example if you got a reading of 14.5 PSI with key on engine off you'd change the MTH to 01220320FF6F and the reading should read 0.0 with key on engine off and would then show how many lbs of boost you were at when the vehicle is running.
