Question for all the drag racers....

Don't worry about your EGT's when racing unless you race everyweekend. A few quick spurts above 1250* won't hurt ya.

You could run 1250* all day long and not hurt the motor...
G'luck at the track, you'll have a tough enough time watching the track in front of you so I doubt you'll see the EGT gauge

I'm hittin 1050* at 90mph.

I hit around 1000 at 78.8 mph. That's being in boost (25-30psi) for 17-ish seconds. Like Marty said...I wouldn't worry about it too much unless your ALWAYS at the track. A few short bursts to 1200+ isn't going to kill your truck...but if your doing it 5-6 times a day, two or three days a week, your looking at melting something.
