That seems AWFUL hot! Was it like up a mountain in 100* weather?! Mine don't get over 600 without towing something ever, mods in sig.

If yours does not get over 600 in normal driving then your pyro probe is post turbo...

I agree with Joe on this. Unless you drive like an old lady and never get on the throttle. I have seen 1500+ but It was a short burst

Yes. It is. I forgot that detail. But there isn't a 600* loss is there?

Pre and post turbo temps can vary as much as 4-500 degrees. At 600 post turbo you are roughly running about 1000 degrees.

I had a post turbo pyro on my old truck for a while. Cruising at 70 it ran about 500 empty loaded I saw 600. Same truck, tunes and loads post turbo pushed 650 or so empty 1100 loaded

That sounds right. 800 pulling a 5er. I didn't realize their was that much temp difference! I gotta move that thing, I don't like that.
