Egts

Well I just put in an pyrometers and well the lowest temp the gauge goes to is 390 and at idle it doesn't move, it only moves when I am into boost, cruising at 70 and about 3 psi I'm running 650-700, my truck is all stock except for a DIY intake, 3-4 down pipe to straight stack, but stock injectors, stock hpop. Truck runs great just wanted some insite on people egts, I've gotten it to 1100 on a 4th gear pull at 3200 rpm, I have 3:55 and a 5 speed, is this about normal? Thanks guys.

Sounds about right depending on if your probe is in a manifold or post turbo. With stock injectors idle temp is about 250-300* and the most I've seen at 3400 rpms running hard with a load 26-27 lbs boost is 1050*

Well the lowest number on my gauge is 390 and it doesn't move at idle so it has to be lower than that, and my probe is in the driver side exhaust manifold, well maybe I was a little higher in rpm and it was about 80 degrees outside if that makes any difference.
