Temperature Compensation

Are autometer pyro's temperature compensated? I know ISSPRO's are.

It means the pryometer is dead on no matter what the ambient temperature is.

Oh I get it. Thanks for teaching me something Jake.

I got a question for ya then. When you turn your truck key to cycle the glow plugs does your pyro go to about 300 degrees before you start it. My ISSPRO's do!

No. Mine don't. When its really damn cold out though it bounces back and forth between 100 and 1500 until its warm enough to actually register on the gauge.

I don't know what answer your looking for, but mine don't do the bouncing thing that yours do. Even at sub zero temps

Mine goes to 0 when I turn the key, unless it's hooter than hell out then it might register above 100*. Then when I shut it off, it goes backwards to almost the 1600* mark to rest

Jake the egt probe will read any temp it sees. If you laid the probe in the sun it would read the temp.

If the probe is installed correctly it should only read the inside temp of the manifold Auto meter or Issopro. You can only do so much with a thermal couple. I am not sure what Issopro is stating but it sounds to me like a claim to sell something that everybody else has they are just pointing it out.

Maybe some will come buy and prove me wrong
