I am setting up the Torque App and I am trying to decide which readings are best to watch. I am not concerned so much about 0-60 times and that sort of thing. I want to watch boost levels, Air Fuel ratios and that sort of thing to ensure that the engine is working properly. I'm interested in input from other R owners about which items you monitor using Torque or a similar app. Any constructive input would be appreciated!

Boost is not available on the R from ODBII, so I have a big pointer gauge on the pillar for that and I use a ScanGauge to watch load, intake air temp, air fuel ratio, and either water temp or estimated hp depending on what I'm doing, like either interstate cruising or performance stuff.

I'd say scangauge > torque app. Torque app is fine for on the fly diagnostics, but depending on your device refresh rate can be slow and finding a decent place to mount your device for viewing can be tough. Scangauge stay with the car, has a faster refresh rate, mounts easily, and is easier to read than the torque app display which can become cluttered.
