Default What Are Your EGTs Running?

Like the title says, what do your EGTs run at about 55 mph and at 70mph?
Mine run about 550* at 0 psi boost at 55 mph and about 600* at 4 psi boost. These are on level road and no noticeable headwind. What's everybody else's run?

You need to add ambient temp in there. I am not gonna run a winter front this winter and see what happens. At 25F at 70 I was running 490F..

But typically in the summer, bout the same 550-55/600-70 My boost is a lot higher than yours though. Maybe 3psi at 55 and 7psi at 70.

At 55 MPH, I run about 3 psi of boost, and about 450* EGT. At 70 MPH, I run about 6 psi of boost and 600* EGT. These temps are pre turbo, and at any ambient temp.
