Hit 1500 egts

Testing out new chip to see how it went. Hit 27 pounds of boost and 1500 egts at 90mph. EGT probe installed in the y-pipe where the 2 up pipes meet. Am I still safe or should I avoid exceeding 1250?

Oh my....The Y pipe sounds a little far back from the head. Everything I have heard says as closer to the engine so the exhaust doesn't have a chance to cool down. If you hit 15 at the Y, then you can be sure it was bleepin hot at the valve. I wish you the best.

Ya.. i was thinking there would be good because it would give me a combined temp reading.

its prob close, but not exact. I wouldnt take it above 1200 with your guage set up now. should be ok. anything above 1450 for any length of time will melt stuff.

Well it wasnt there for long. Went from 0 - 90 just to test out the extreme tune. And how accurate can having a probe on only one side be? I have heard temps can be different on each side so unless you have a probe for each side, i just figured that would be the next best place for combined readings. I guess I'll have to be a little more carefull. So dont exceed 1400 for even short bursts. Thanks
