Pyro temps

I just installed my H&s and 5in flo pro. My H&s says my pyro temps are around 2200 is this a correct number. Also where is it reading from. Thanks in advance.

That can't be right. I've seen a few other guys have false readings like that. I can't remember what the fix was off the top of my head though. It should be around 300 at idle and no more than 1500 at wide open throttle. Did you install a pyrometer with the EGR block plates?

Not sure where that reading is coming from. The H&S uses a temp. probe from the DPF/SCT unit and installs in a bung on an EGR exhaust gas delete plate. If you use the wrong temp probe...ie the one from the EGR...you'll get crazy high temp readings.

2200 degree readings and your turbo would be melting...something isn't right. I'm thinking you need to install the appropriate probe into the delete plate.

So the pyro temp1 # comes from a probe in the egr delete plate. Which I haven't done an egr delete. So this temp I'm getting is coming from something else that probably doesn't even matter.

Correct. But you will probably run in to troubles with the tuner de-fueling the engine if you are running performance tunes. H&S designed a set of safety parameters that will cut fuel to the engine if violated. I ran into this when I used the pyro probe from the EGR unit. Got really weird, and very high, egt readings. The tuner would alarm and then de-fuel. I'm not sure how much adjustment range H&S gives you...or if you can disable the de-fuel function for high egt's.

Just some of the features you should be aware of. Also.....some of the mistakes that people have made in the recent past...whom shall remain nameless .

The easiest way to get a good pyro reading is the h&s egt kit. It just replaces the egr inlet pipe with 2 blocker plates. One with a bung for the pyro that goes on the cyl head. Easy 10 min install and your egr is blocked. You can also use one of your oem pyros and plug it up to the egr temp wire that's not being used. Go to the user options on your mini maxx and select pyro source. Then select factory. You'll get some crazy readings if it's not set to the right one.
