6 Speed Guys with Gauges

Fellas (and ladies), I've got a question. I've been loaned an early 99 3/4 sc/sb 4x4 6sp with turbo back and the older model Banks six gun (the one with the gauge mounted display). can anyone with a similar setup tell me the RPM's and EGT numbers when they are rolling between 65 and 70. At 1900 I'm at 340-380. Seems hot to me. Let me know what you think. Oh ya, btw, its got 244ish-k on it. thanks everybody

at 1900 rpm's you are running 340-380 degrees?

if so that seems LOW to me...

Seriously though that is not high at all.

I run 2100-2300 rpms at 65-70 and 550-700 degrees depending how level the road is.

banks exhaust too? EGT probe is probably post turbo in the downpipe. If its post turbo, try not to go over 900*, pre turbo its 1250* I believe.

holy smokes. I've never run a truck with an egt gauge before. I was actually getting nervous. I'm pretty sure he's got 3.73's in this truck. I believe his EGT probe is pre turbo. Could be wrong tho. He's on his senior cruise for merchant marines, so I can't really ask him right now. lol. Thanks for the replies everyone. I'm trying not to abuse his truck since it's not mine. Ant btw, his turbo back exhaust is not Banks, it is from a custom shop in MA that did it really cheap (but it's done right).

Your way too cool to be pre turbo. Open the hood and look where the exhaust starts after the turbo. You will see a probe drilled into that down pipe.

I guaranty it there.

I have the banks system and mine at highway speeds 65-75 are never that low they between 550 and 800, check the location of the egt sensor it should be in the manifold before the turbo as others have stated, but it sounds like it is after the turbo in the down pipe, for that low of temps.
