Auto Meter - EGT Gauge Reading?

I searched and can not find the anwser.

I bought a AutoMeter Boost and EGT gauges. I took it out of the box and the EGT gauge is reading 1200. Is this normal? I was going to just hook it up and see what happeneds, but would like to get it resolved before starting to hook them up.

I have read a few threads on how to isntall them and I see them all reading 0.

Maybe it 0s out after its installed with power?

Not positive but I think it should do a full sweep of the dial everytime you start it and zero out. That's what mine do but I'm not sure if they all do it.
