Default cobb stage 2 owners, is a EGT gauge a must?

I was curious to know those of you who are running a cobb stage 2 93 flash, can you run it without a egt gauge? i know its smart to have, but can it be put off till later down the road?
TIA!

I don't run an egt, and I probably won't get one. I'm just going to go straight to a wideband, probably with some kind of datalogging capability. There's already a bung in my Cobb dp just waiting for it.

Yeah, but ya might end up like this:

That my friends is why you use an EGT gauge when upgrading your car's performance...especially if you are using a TBE.

Even though it is 'off-the-shelf' engine management, I'd highly recommend running a basic set of gauges (EGT, Boost and Oil Pressure or Temp).

I've seen several threads where people have talked about high EGTs with Cobb reflashes. Even if the root cause isn't the reflash, it's a cheap insurance policy.

yeah i'm looking to get a borla header and have a egt bung welded in that rather than my stocker.

my question then is this, say you are running high egts and lets say you are crusing at 70mph on the highway, what can be done at that moment to help things out? I guess what I"m wondering is yeah the gauge will tell you whats going on, but how should someone react to help remedy the situation and bring those temps down? Would downshifting help to maybe get out of boost, and what if its not even in boost, just vacuum, what shoudl someone do next?

thanks for your help everyone, i appreciate it

in my opinion, for the street, i think you should get an egt guage, its a good idea when you adjust boost levels above factory settings.

You shouldn't see high EGT's just cruising, but if you did let off the gas/slow down.

I see High EGT's with the accessport in certain situations. Full throttle for a long time (on the track), and especially pulling up a long uphill grade in 5th gear.

New versions of the Stage II map really helped with this, but I'd say it is still critical to have an EGT gauge or avoid certain situations like those above.
