Few EGT and boost guage questions....

K, just did some new guages last night, autometer z-series.

Was wondering what everyones EGTs are while sitting at a light, normal daily driving, and when hard on it. Mine are about 400ish sitting, 600ish driving, and hard on it with my SCT programmer they don't go over 1200-1300 at most. Wanted to know what kinda numbers I should be looking for, and not to exceed.

Also, my boost guage, its really aggrivating me. When daily driving, it creeps up nice and smoothe, when you get on it, the guage goes up to the 30psi but you can't read exactly what number its at because the needle shakes like a senior with Parkinson's Disease. This can't be normal with these guages can it? if not, how do you go about fixing it?

I recently bought the Autometer 2 Gauge pod with boost and pyro. The first pyro was stuck pointing down. They ordered me another and this one is stuck on 200. Was yours OK?

EGT's sound about right. About the boost gauge, I'm assuming you tied into the map line? If so the Autometer gauges are prone to gauge flutter in the map line. Drill and tap the intake elbow and install the fitting there, should take care of your gauge flutter.

-Mine are 400, sitting at a stoplight. I usually throw it in Neutral at the stoplight and it wil drop to 360.
-630-680 while driving at 65mph
-850 while pulling a enclosed trailer at 62mph
-1200 when I put my foot to the floor

What he said. I have Autometer Phantoms, and I tapped the elbow, after getting info from the org. The map line is the quickest, just not the most accurate.

Yes, it's the very bottom guage on the pillar, and the line is super glued.
