Hey guys Im thinking i have a problem with the truck. I was woundering what your egt temp is when you running stock? Mine last night was about 1000 but i wasnt even hard on it at all. I did just put some new gauges is so i wounder if it could be the gauge to but it all so seems to run a little rough when its could.

Do you have a boost gauge? If your low on boost with high EGT's, look for torn IC boots. A egt valve stuck open will also cause high EGT's and run rough.

In normal driving I'm usually 600-800 degrees. If I get on it for a bit I may break 1000. This is pre-turbo, and I'm stock.

Well, right now I use Scangauge II, some use Edge Insight. The only things the Scangauge doesn't read, is EGT's, Fuel pressure, Oil pressure. The boost part of the Scangauge is doing weird things on mine, but it reads all things the PCM reads , which is through the OBD port.

I will be looking at EGT,Fuel, OIl pressures on manual gauges soon.

P.S. Edge Insight can be purchased with a additional probe for EGT's.

Scanguage II =$160

Edge Insight w/probe=around $350, w/o probe $280 ? Not sure.
