Pyro install: Post Turbo / exahust manifold / etc?
I've been told a few times now that where my pyro is installed is not good. Or that my reading post are to high. Being I'm slowly moding my rig up, and the occasional heavy tow, I would ask the forum what install location is right, best, and safest. And also, yellow line / red line approximate max temps? I would guess these approx max temps would read differently as to where the probe is installed?
On a trip back from TX with a 40' enclosed trailer (empty), I would see the gauge temp up just over 1K. I would then change gear or turn off one of the overdrives (depending on road conditions) to get RPMs up, and EGTs would drop back to around 800.
I just went for a lunch drive. It's about 90 dig out side. Reading from scangaugeII. W/ and WO/ gearvenders on.
w/ 1476rpm 550dig
wo/ 1895 450dig
moved up to 53mph 1570rpm 500 dig
Back to work, let idle for a few min. 680rpm 280 and looked to be dropping.
If I remember correctly, I would see around 800dig at steady speeds of 85 and up. I would have to do a new run to get scangauge figures (and will if needed)???
What do you all think? Also, I'm not sure at this second if the housing is Banks or Garret. Thanks.
