I haven't heard how good it is but I like the layout of the Zeitronix display. Even if you don't get the wideband it may be worth the cost of the display for boost and EGT. With the wideband it only gets better :wink:

EGT gauge is also called Pyrometer gauge.
One thing to consider, Autometer EGT gauge is in Fahrenheit and max at 1600F.
Greddy EGT gauge is in Celcius and normally max at 1200C (or 2192F).
Greddy and defi cost $200 or more.
You can get Autometer for about $100 more or less depending on which series it is.

OK now what are you all seeing for EGT temps at the locations that you have them at. And what boost as well.
For exsample in my supra:

Probe in runner #5
1400F EGT's at 12psi
1600F+ at 16 psi
11.1 to 12.0 AFR's

Depends on what kind of probe you get....
I got the expensive one (open? reacts quicker).

Highest I ever got was right above 1400. That was on the hiway, at boost. Probe was/is in the bottom bung of the aussie dp.

*think it was 1400. :oops: been a while.*

Cool..... What was your boost at when you hit that EGT? I am just trying to collect as much info as possible on these cars.
