EGT question

999 Views 6 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  VALKYRIE YB70
I'm finishing installing the turbo setup from the s-coupe in my accent, but I think the pyrometer went bad. The thing reaches 800 degrees at idle!!! is that normal? i thought it was going to be a t 300-500 degrees, please tell me your EGT at idle so I can compare and realize if the gauge is crazy as hell or is it a normal thing...Thanks in advance8D

No one has an EGT gauge?:O
800-900 egts at idle is fine
1200 when crusing
1650 MAX when WOT
is it safe to get up there?
thanks for your response

depends on the motor. yes 800 degrees is normal. it is relational to air fuel ratio i believe. i've read elsewhere that 1300 is max. depends what your motor can handle. DSMer (mistu eclipse, eagle talon, etc) FAQs may help provide more info as well.
Here you guys go :
An oil-cooler is going to be a MUST!.

The stock S-Coupe Turbo (with the 7.5:1 low-compression standard pistons) runs very hot indeed........(& I guess your compression may be higher than this)!.
The temperature of oil in the oil-pan often reaches 125C in ordinary running.......oil can start to break down @ 140C.

An oil-cooler will cut this back to 85/90C.......much safer!.
