Hey guys!  Finally got around to buying and installing a PLX EGT module for my DM-6 gauge.

I was wondering what normal EGT's should be for these engines.

With my current tune I'm seeing 900-1000 degrees at idle, and 1350-1400 highway cruising at 15.2 AFR, 2800 rpms, and 38*+/-  of timing.

That is almost exactly what I am getting. I have posted the question several times myself.

Where is your probe mounted?  I put mine right at the collector/turbo flange on my log manifold.  I'm not sure if that makes much of a difference, but I've read that just outside of the #4 cylinder is ideal.  But for me, it's only a 6" or so difference, except that it would be reading only one cylinder, rather than all four.

You are better than I am with the probe. Mine is in the down pipe right after the elbow, so my real life temps might be 100 degrees hotter.

Or 200-300 hotter. Shocked

900 idle/sub-1400 cruise at the turbo collector isn't bad for an engine of the era IMO.

With further driving, I've settled on these numbers at the collector...

Idling for a long time:  930-950*F
Short idle after driving:  1050-1100*F
Slow cruising:  1200-1300*F
Cruising at 70mph:  1400-1450*F
Moderate acceleration:  1400-1500*F
Hard Acceleration (18psi):  1500-1550*F  with a 50/50% by weight water methanol injection (370ml per minute).
