Bryce hi,EGT and BOOST gauges hooked up, I think they are calibrated well. I’d love to hear numbers on the 1hdt and what I should be looking out for! Everything on mine is OEM For the most part.
EGT probe is pre turbo. Boost vacuum hose was tied into the hose coming out of the ‘turbo’ crossover manifold.
Initial tests show:
Idle after warmed - EGT ~360F / BOOST ~4.6 PSI
110kph @ ~2500RPM - EGT ~600-800F / BOOST ~10 PSI
During acceleration onto highway - EGT ~1000 - 1200F / BOOST ~12PSI
Short burst of full acceleration - EGT ~1100 - 1400F
id love to hear any thought on these numbers and any recommended adjustments.
I highly recommend the PDI intercooler. Will be one of your best investments. It will reduce your EGT considerably even with higher boosts. I installed also a Gturbo and tapered down the boost to 18 psi. This is a photo climbing the back side of the Sierras at 65 mph. EGT (pre-turbo) never exceeds 1000F. The engine will live longer.
