    Hey guys! I just installed a autometer pyrometer EGT gauge on my turbo d16z6. I welded the bung 1-2 inches away from the turbo. I was wondering whats the normal gas temp for these motors. In normal street driving, it reads 800-1100 degrees (F). And on the load it reads 1200-1350 degrees (F). Is this normal?? Am I running lean?? What does this all mean? Thanks in Advance!

    is that F or C? if its C, its way too hot.

    sdefi.com has a good write up on EGT readings.

    if that's your temp AFTER the turbo, that's way too hot.
    if that's your temp BEFORE the turbo, its just really hot.
