Exhaust temps should be reading as high as 14,000 degrees F. You sure its not 10,000 degrees? Where did they install the EGT sensor?

my egt's are 800-1000 at idle and 14-1500 degrees on the highway. I'm thinking you have one too many zeros, wizzman. 14,000 is pretty hot.

No, I think Wizzman is right. I hear the 05s run much hotter than the 04s....

The EGT probe was put in the up-pipe on Scooby888's car to get a reading before the turbo dumps off heat.

Yup, this way the gauge needle at least moves halfway up the gauge! I figure the more gauge you use the better, right?

So far I'm at around 900 at idle and 1,300 at WOT. Plus the gauges look so purdy.

Ya, we didn't open here for the night life, that's for sure. We are working on a customer waiting area, and when that's done we'll have to kick you guys out at the end of the night when you come here!

On the plus side there is a food shop nearby with an "adult only" hot sauces section...just gotta see it to believe it...

It's OK Aaron, I'm sure I'll catch you around in the future.

I found this I couldn't help it.

The surface of the Sun, also known as the photosphere, is relatively cool, only 10,000 degrees Fahrenheit.

Default Synaptic3 is the real deal.

Thanks again guys - the car is sweet. You should have ridden in it before to see the night and day difference in the spool character.

Alignment feels very nice guys - planted, crisper, grippy, and fun again!

I'll be up there Monday getting corner balanced and aligned. I can't wait to feel the car after it's properly set up. Aaron is surgical with that alignment rack. .

Trevor - Aaron found that the UR upipe had a bent WG flange on the pressure side. Didn't seem like much of a leak, but the spool difference is obvious. Aaron pulled the uppipe while leaving the turbo in and undisturbed and milled the flange flat.

Ted - are you rolled?

Yeah the guys at Synaptic are great! I trust no one more when it comes to aligning my car. They can do just about anything you need.

Saw your car their last night Jamie, nice camber plates

Hopefully wrapping that up-pipe to go along with that beautiful header wrap job you did helped out a little on the spool up.

ive still gotta come by and have you guys recirc my EWG setup.

hopefully my stuff from Innovate comes monday (AFR gauge and a stainless bung for my new DP), so i need to add a bung for my wideband shortly after the turbo...and i want to add a flex section and plumb my atmospheric dump wastegate back into the DP.

(if need be, i can bring you the wastegate, a junker turbo (as a mock up), the UR uppipe, Tial WG, and all the vband clamps...)...im just poor right now from this damned motor build....so im limited on what i can spend.
