1200-1250 is normal and you can run up to 1400 for a short burst. You do have your probe in one of the manifolds and not post turbo correct?

1250 all day, but i have hit 1600 on short bursts with no il effect thus far, but that was with an edge tuner and a psd on the trailer, very steep hill's, but you dont wanna be above 1250 for very long lol

I have a hypermax turbo/egt combo guage on my truck. when you get on it the egt raises, but drops as soon as you let off the throttle. it goes to the drivers side manifold, that doesnt seem right. I question its accuracy.

When you accelerate and inject more fuel, EGTs go up.
When you don't have fuel, they go down. What's so wrong about that?
