EGT Installed...temp range?

I installed my EGT prob just under the turbo inlet...on the highway today 3,800 RPM, 13.5 lbs boost and temp was at 950F...truck was running very well....around town at 3,00 RPM and about 8 lbs not really under load and running 650F....with a 19J I don't want to stress it to much...could prob crank the turbo manual boost up a tad more...but I think the at 950 F I prob shouldn't play with the fuel anymore...thoughts...?

On the 4K RPM gauge, the engine kind of tops out at 4K...I never adjusted the gauge so it may be off...not sure what these little 4cyl RPM range is...

1300 F sustained should be your limit.

3800 rpm would be hitting the rev limiter.

13.5psi on a 19J is a bad idea.

The RPM gauge may be off a bit...I does not hit the limiter until the gauge bottoms out at 4K...(I don't push it that far)...where is the boost recommended on that motor...?...BTW this motor is original at 83K miles...but do not want to kill it...it also has a big ass All Sport full size intercooler on it...

The maximum in the manual is 9.3 psi.

Intercooler?
