EGT temps?

I got my pyrometer installed finally, and let it run to see where I was at before I messed with the fuel pump.
I can't get it to go over 800 and thats pretty much hammering on it.
I know like 1300 for a minute will fry a turbo. I assume I'm same to start making small adjustments to the fuel pump?

Where did you drill for the thermocoupler?

Is your truck N/A or turbo?

800* is a really safe point to start at, you can definatly turn the pump up. I have my pump maxxed and my max EGT I see is about 1000*

Its easier to do it on the driver side so the cable isnt running over any hot pipes and is closer to the entrance to the cab.
