Got my gauges in and they have peak warnings built in that are user defined.

Oil Pressure (measured in KPA)
Oil Temp (measured in celsius)
Water Temp (measured in celsius)
Boost (measured in KPA)

My question is what "PEAKS" should set them at to give me a safe cushion to get the car shut down before any possible damage?

Thanks,

David

For the temps I would say:
-110°~115° for coolant
-around 130° for oil.

O.k. so translating that to fahrenheit would be:
Coolant - 110C~115C = 230F~239F Degrees for PEAK setting correct?
Oil - 130C = 266F Degrees for PEAK setting correct?

That seems awfully high though.
At what temps would warpage/damage occur?

you are correct.
Regarding the values itselve these are my suggestions for warning values therefore they are, of course, higher than normal operating temps but not too high, though.
Water temp is usually around 90-95°C(=~200°F) and oil is easy going up to 100-110°(=~230°F). From 120-130° you should startgo easy on that one.
If you do not have high quality oil in then you can set the warning value to 115°C. But this is archieved rather quick when going w/o any external oil cooler and doing long highway pulls.

Thanks Hefti2, I'll take those settings into concideration when I set them up.

Anybody else? What about boost and oil pressure?
