Egt

Hi guys,

I used to own a 6.0 and just bought a obs for the girlfriend

The previus owner installed a egt sensor but AFTER the turbo, like 2 or 3 inch. At wot i get like 600ish Fanrenheigt. I know to dont bust 1500 1600 F when the sensor in manifold.

My question is what kind of egt Im supose to get with the sensor in the dp ? And when let off the fuel pedal


Thankss

200-400 seems to be the general consensus, either way drilling the manifold and plugging the hole in your DP is the way to go for a proper reading. Their are to many variables when reading post turbo.

Ok thanks guy for the info, ill let it there. The truck is pretty much stock ( edge tuning, cai and straight ) and will serve as winter beater so no big deal.

Here it is, my girl and her new '13 tdi







And yes, it needs a paint job lol

I kinda like the three-tone, it's unique....

Yeah, agreed, if the temp difference pre-turbo vs post- were linear or consistent, it'd be easy and everybody would be poking the probe in their downpipe.

Don't wanna go past 1250 not 15-1600 1250 is the melting point of aluminum, so if you go past that mite wanna make it a very short burst

Turn your fuel down, and tell your girl to watch for 1000* since its in the down pipe, Kause if she hits 1250 as is it could already be to late

Lots of guys hit 1600-1800 in their 6.0, they jus do it for short burst like a 1/4 mile run or something. I've towed at 1200-1250 for a few hours straight only dropping to 1000 briefly cause of a slight down hill and I haven't had any problems.
