Default Best place for EGT bung

Ok,Nobody wants to buy these gauges so i am putting some in my ride cause they look to freaking sweet.

I will be putting a Greddy 60mm oil pressure,Water temp,and EGT gauge.

My question is where the best place for the EGT bung is.I hear everone say that Cylinder # 3 is the lean one but I've heard that it is due to the shoddy fuel rails not5 giving a even flow of fuel.

So I'm planning on a complete fuel system.Better rails,RC injectors,High volume fuel pump.

I would assume that this will solve the fuel flow problem.Now my question is where you think the best place for me to mount the EGT bung is.With all these upgrades should I move it into a place where it will measure all the gases or do I still mount it by cylindfer # 3.I have Brullen headers on the car by the way.

Any feedback would be appreciated.

You will want it 2-3 inches from the exhaust valve, or you will not know the actual exhaust temp. You will have to have a different scale than everyone else as to what is to hot. If you do fuel system (and parellel mod) before the gauges, put it where ever it is easiest for you.

So I should still put it close to Cylinder 3 then dispite the fuel system correct?

Also,How do I figure out what is Too hot and do you think that since I now plan on never adding boost should I do a A/F gauge instead of EGT?

I would just put it on cylinder 3.

I don't want to comment with any certainty on on exhaust temps. I have no experiance with them, and what modifications affect them in what way.

Basically 1500 is getting hot, 1600 is dangerous, this should be any different than the turbos, but you should get an answer from someone who knows first hand.

With the risk of sounding ignorant, is it fare to say that you do not want to mount an egt after the turbo on the down pipe.

Yes it is. (fare to say that you do not want......)

While no question is ignorant (unless you as about the best exhaust or intake in this forum ) You would get better answers from the turbo forum.

Default oops

ok, so that did sound bad. I did a search for EGT and did not pay any attention to the section of the forum. Thanks for being gentle to such a big oops.
