egt temp

i bought my 6.0 used and it already had an edge juice on it. the egt probe is behind the turbo on the down pipe to the exuast. i cant get a temp above 700 deg. no matter how hard i mash. could this be the problem or could the probe need cleaning or replacing?

YES! I moved mine and the temps shoot up and fall much faster! The temps were probably 300* higher in the manifold.
