EGT Probe Kit

What is a good kit for EGT monitoring using the block plates. I will have the XRT tuner....so I'm assuming I should get a EGT kit? I see a lot of digital setups on Ebay.

Most people are running Spartan or H&S mini so that's what they use. You could look into an Edge Insight w/ pyro

I'm thinking you need the Mini Maxx to have the gauge ability. It is really worth it....since you don't have to mess around with another unit. Plus you have the ability to monitor a bunch of other parameters...coolant temp, tranny temp, boost level etc.

Already have the XRT, so the mini is a no go. Not buying two tuners. Why wouldn't I be able to read the EGT with a normal probe and gauge?

So....All this is from the H&S website:

XRT Pro features:



Reads/Clears Diagnostic Trouble Codes
Internet Update-able with included SD Memory Card & USB adapter
Custom Tunes are FREE to download. Check the XRT Pro Updates section to see what is available for your product.
XRT Pro can only be installed on one vehicle at a time!

Mini Maxx features:


Available Gauges to Monitor (PID’s)

Current Power Level
Transmission Gear Position
Estimated Torque *11-12 Models Only*
Torque Converter Status
Pyro 1
Pyro 2
Speed
Boost Pressure
Engine RPM
Coolant Temperature
Injector Pulse Width
Throttle Percentage
Intake Air Temperature
Barometric Pressure
Battery Voltage
Oil Temperature
Fuel Rail Pressure (ICP)
Transmission Temperature (Auto)
Load Percentage
Timing
Exhaust Back Pressure

So...As you can see...the Mini Maxx has the gauge package capabilities....the XRT doesn't.

Also found a blurp from H&S about max EGT's...and their perspective:

How hot is "too hot" on EGT's?
When talking EGT, we will always refer to a pre-turbo reading. A general rule of thumb is to keep it under 1500 degrees. The DPF equipped diesel trucks are built to handle much more heat than their predecessors, but please be cautious when exceeding 1350 for more than a short period of time. Use your judgment to decide what temperature you can run, as each case will vary.

I think you arent understanding his question Senderofan.. He is looking to buy a gauge such as an analog gauge from autometer and a probe and use it for monitoring Autometer Sport Comp EGT Gauge - CI Motorsports .. I just pulled that off of google...
