Egt???

Hey guys this is a question mostly for the tech's but i just got a TS chip and i am curious what is the max EGT that you would want to run? I have heard no more than 1200 and i have also heard no more than 1400 Degrees. Just wanted to get an educated answer. Thanx

you can hit as much as 1600 for a few seconds, but try never to run it sustained over about 1200 IMO....you may do alright setting 1400 as your limit, but i wouldnt personally reccomend it.......Marc

Does it matter a whole lot where you put the EGT sensor?

Yes it needs to be in the manifold, before the turbo. for the most accurate reading.

There can be as much as a 400 degree plus difference between readings in the manifold to readings post turbo. Manifold is the best place, there's a good (read: easy to get to) location in the drivers side manifold just before it mates to the up pipe. The manifolds are easy to drill and tap, just pack the tap with grease so you don't get chips in the manifold, they will damage the turbo. Make sure to run the probe wiring away from the rest of the exhaust.
