Is This Normal???

Well I just had my guages put on and I was wondering if 380-400 at idle is normal for my EGTs?

Thanks

That seems high compared to mine, but I have an intake and exhaust.

I'm usually running around 260-280*F


Someone will chime in with a little more knowledge

I was thinking it seemed a bit high, but the guys at 4 wheel parts where I had it installed said it wasn't?

That seems high to me. I WAIT untill it gets down to 300 to even shut it off. It's around 400-500 just cruisin around, 600 highway, 800 towing. And the Michigan COLD it's around 200-300. See sig . Maybe our gauges aren't in the same place though who knows.

Well today I made it a point to see what my readings where when driving into work. Here's what I came up with. Idle in drive: 380-400, Cruising at 65: 600-700, and while in park or N it'll go down to 350. This sound ok, or do I need to take it back to 4 Wheel Parts? Thanks guys...
