EGT TEMP!

I know that i am stuck on knowing the temps, but what should the EGT temps run with a SCT X3 NOT towing! What are the mins and the max's? the one that I got has the warning if it gets to hot it sets off a warning. just wondering what to set it on.

normal highway and city temps for me would be between 500 and 800 degrees. when im smashing on it with my xtreme tune i see temps upwards of 1200 to 1400 degrees. hopes that helps bro.

1400 for too long will hurt it. i don't know what to set it at .i have mechanical guages and if i am hot rodding around it will climb to 1200 immediately and advance to 1400 and i then let off. i do not hold it at 1400 for long at all. only moments. if you are towing i would guess 1250. and that would be holding steady. also where your pyrometer is located is VERY important, it needs to be pre turbo, preferably in the drivers side exhaust manifold.

what happens if its not located in the drivers manifold? inaccurate readings? i heard that some put it on the down pipe and other locations. can any shop do it? should i be careful where I take it?

if it is in the downpipe i have heard that 1200 to 1250 is equal to 1400 pre turbo. the down pipe placement is NOT reccomended.

if you drill it your self removing the manifold is best. however, if you leave it on the truck you can grease the drill bit and it will trap most metal.then some use a magnet for the rest.

I left my truck running while I drilled and tapped it.
