New Gauages questions

Just installed Autometer Phantom 2 Pyron, Boost, Trans and took it for test drive. Trans worked as expected not actually oving until I had driven for a few miles, unlike the stock one. Boost also normal mirroring stock pretty closely. The EGT is where I have a question. mounted in the manifold at the entrance to the turbo intake. At idle it is around 300 shich appears normal. now when I drive it seems to move much more than I thought at HWY with no load at 70 with 8lbs Turbo boost and 83 degrees it runs about 750. When I stand on it it jumps to about 1100 then will drift down to about 800. Again if I am at a pretty steady speed the EGT stays pretty steady betwoon 600-800.

Question is does it normally move along with amount of foot in the accelerator?

Newby question just want to make sure this i normal.

That is about normal for the EGT.

Reason, its monitoring the exhaust temps, when you induce more fuel, you raise cylinder temps, and that expels through the exhaust system. Cruising without a load should remain around 650-800*, and you should allow it to cool at least to 400* prior to shutdown. The critical thresehold is 1250*, thats when you want to come out of the throttle to prevent damages. (Temps over 1250* for short bursts is ok, but try and keep duration to a minimum.)

06 250 Lariat XLT. Right in the middle/bottom of the cluster.
The factory Trans temp reads about 1/4 of the way up sitting in my driveway without even moving. I hear this is normal and why I got a gauge that will actually give me the temp.
