Egt temp

I installed an autometer boost and egt guage about a month ago. I am starting to think that the egt guage is not working properly because it never climbs over 700 degrees. Even towing my car trailer it never gets any higher. Could this be normal or is the guage messed up? Thanks

Is your truck chipped or programmed?

Well I mine can go over 700 just running down the highway climbing a hill at 80. With a trailer and a car and it doesnt go over 700 I would def say something is up. How fast are you running? Is it mostly flat ground? Seems really low, but there are people on here alot better at these questions then me. So heres a long drawn out bump

Where is the probe located? If you only see 700* pre turbo then the gauge is bad or you have a bad connection. Even stock I could see 1150* pre turbo.

The probe is in the drivers side up pipe, pretty close to the manifold. My buddy bought the same guages, im going to borrow his and see what happens. Thanks for the help.

This will sound stupid - but what kind of gaugesdo you have?, and do you have a CB radio in the truck?
