sct livewire questions

I purchased a new sct livewire a few days ago and when I am at an idle it is showing my turbo boost at -2 psi... also my battery voltage drops to 10.5 volts when I am cranking to start but goes up to 13.75 or so once its running... the turbo psi is my main concern bc I plan on purchasing 2 new batteries on pay day. Does anyone else have this psi reading or do I have a problem or could it be because my current elevation is 5500 ft? Any answers from the powerstroke gods would be great lol

It's the elevation, I drove through Colorado once and at one point I had -5 lbs.

Re: sct livewire questions

other vehicles i have show around 10 volts when cranking. i think that's normal when a high current is being drawn. kinda like to hear more though

Re: sct livewire questions

Don't waste the money on batteries. Its normal to drop down like that while cranking til the glow plugs go off and the alternator kicks in. If your that concerned about them then pull the batteries and get them load tested. If they are coming up the 13.5 though you have no issue.

I would guess the elevation is your boost issue. I can say that I am running the Livewire in my 6.0 for gauges right now but will adding a pillar as soon as funds allow. Not a big fan of the digital ones.
