I ran a couple of tests on my car, are these normal. My car idles at about an average of 850 rpm's. My air temp is 55 C, and coolant temp is 85 C, and air pressure is 40 kpa.

EDIT: Rechecking

air pressure at 40 kpa = 5.8 PSI. You should have a vacuum (negative pressure) not positive pressure in the intake manifold. It should run around 15 inches of vacuum or more at idle.
air temp 55 C = 131 F, that should be about right for under hood temps.
coolant 85 C = 185 F, depends on what thermostat you are running. If oem 195 then it is too cold, if a colder thermostat then you should be on target.

Not the intake air pressure, as I stated you should have a vacuum not positive pressure. Unless the reading was -40 Kpa?

Faulty MAP/MAF sensor reading, major vacuum leak. Might see if you can have the system read in English instead of Metric readings.
