Default Top 6 areas to monitor on APv3

Hey everybody I did a small amount of searching and couldn't find anything specific on this. Since my new AP v3 can show up to 6 parameters at a time, what would be the top 6 things to watch?

I'm going to list what my current 6 choices are and any input on important things to watch would be appreciated.

I currently watch:
Boost
Intake Temp
Coolant Temp
MAF
Gear Position
Wastegate Max

I also have prosport gauges for boost and oil pressure and I have an AEM UEGO Wideband.

Shouldnt matter too much but the car is on a custom stage 2 tune. 2005 sti with 07 motor.

I am currently monitoring Boost, Intake Temp, A/F Learning 1, Fine Knock Learn, Feedback Knock, and DAM.

According to Cobbs Website:

Top 5 Monitors
Our top 5 monitor list consists of; A/F Learning 1, Boost, DAM, Fine Knock Learning, and Feedback Knock Correction. There are many other parameters to log though, and with experience they can be useful to help diagnose tuning and mechanical issues on the vehicle. But with a quick glance and little knowledge, these 5 monitors can give you a good idea of your vehicle's health and performance.

I find the Cobb defaults are good enough for the average person that just does the occasional logs but there's lots of information if you are more inclined.

I think the OP is referring to the "gauge" mode, not data logging.

My mistake. I prefer to monitor 4 items or less to keep the boost gauge a little larger seeing that's the most important gauge parameter. Some of the parameters like feedback knock are kind of useless as a gauge monitor as peak values will always be low RPM false knock.

Boost, injector duty cycle, engine load, a/f learning 1, feedback knock and fine knock learning.

In cold and moderate weather, intake temps aren't as important to watch as injector duty. Especially if you are on the stock injectors at stage 2.

If you want to watch AFR, get a wideband.

Boost, A/F Ratio, Coolant Temp, Throttle Position.

Although, I'm interested to see what others are doing.

I currently have 6 monitors:

A/F Learning 1
A/F Correction 1
A/F Ratio 1
Fuel Economy (misnomer - should be efficiency)
Boost
Intake Temperature

I'd like Cobb to bring back the average fuel efficiency calculator in the next AP firmware but I didn't get a single bit of feedback on my other post, so I'm not holding my breath.

Should've made it clear that I was looking for the top 6 things to monitor in real time WHILE DRIVING. Not asking what to monitor for a data log.

This has been brought up internally and is being discussed right now. I don't know how/when/if it'll happen yet, but you have been heard good sir.
