35-40° seems normal?That seems normal actually.. what are the symptoms?
No detonation extremely high EGT readingsI don't think so. You getting detonation?
12-1300° at cruising speedsNo detonation extremely high EGT readings
12 to 1300 degree EGT readings at cruising speedsNo detonation extremely high EGT readings
That seems odd since my EGT gauge only goes to 1600 degreesThose egt are safe in a gasoline engine under light to moderate load. They will increase with retarding timing, you are likely at stoic at this temperature where egt tend to be the highest. Under wot it's not uncommon to see 1600-1900 egt on gasoline.
Your also probably not going to be pushing 40+ psi through a turbo, the heat in the header can get rather extreme. you can try playing with timing/fuel to see if it will reduce, going leaner and richer than stoic will reduce EGT temperatures. the leaner you go the more advance the engine will want, keep that in mind as well.That seems odd since my EGT gauge only goes to 1600 degrees
I appreciate your help I built the car 11 years ago and then had to put it away after only a couple hundred miles it's a 306 trick flow heads Anderson blower cam Vortec 5-speed 373 gear Anderson Ford Motorsports PMS system the car literally got put away for 10 years I'm just trying to bring it back to life I don't recall the egts being that high on it the high timing and high egts appear to come in before the standalone system comes into play also cannot seem to save changes on the engine management system you don't know anybody who is familiar with the Anderson Ford Motorsports PMS system do you this whole thing literally has two to three hundred miles on everything so I'm not looking to discard any of the items that purchased during the buildYour also probably not going to be pushing 40+ psi through a turbo, the heat in the header can get rather extreme. you can try playing with timing/fuel to see if it will reduce, going leaner and richer than stoic will reduce EGT temperatures. the leaner you go the more advance the engine will want, keep that in mind as well.
advancing the timing will reduce the temp in the exhaust, ever seen headers start to glow at idle? usually the result of overly retarded timing.
Hmmm,well maybe I should just trash the whole thing.its not Naturally aspiratedyea take that off and throw it in the trash toss a moates quarterhorse on it and actually tune it
also i see you have an msd distributor. Take that off and pitch it in the trash as well and upgrade to an oem stock replacement distributor.
egt is useless on an na gas engine
