EGT, ECT vs EOT, check air filter Questions.

I have a few questions for all of you out there.

Today driving down the road, my "check air filter" light came on, so I am assuming its time to replace it?

Going down the highway at about 70MPH outside temp 75deg, my ECT was 188 my EOT was 195. Is this okay?

Also, how important is it to monitor EGT's while tuned? What can happen if not monitored?

Thanks all!

Don't need one right now but was thinking to have a spare on hand in case mine goes bad. I couldn't afford to be down for a few days as it is my only vehicle to get to work.
rdunagan can u PM me at your convenience with a $. Thank you.
