Re: EGT what's the max before problems occur
When passing Dodges and Chebby's up long hills, I have seen 1500-1700 for a few seconds at a time, with no apparent harm. I've done it a couple of times. I think the real harm comes in holding it at real high egt temps for long periods of time as it will melt your pistions and your turbo wheels, bearings, etc. This is another reason to run synthetic engine oil like Amsoil as it can take the higher heat better than dino. Don't forget, your engine oil also oils your turbo bearings.
