high egt?

Driving around town today I noticed my egt gauge was reading about 800 just cruising and then when I went in WOT it went to about 1200 and stayed there till I let out of it (didn't hold it there very long).

What sound the egt be at? And what would be the cause of this?

Sounds normal to me, 1200 at WOT is nothing.

Re: high egt?

That's about right. Cruising mine runs about 700, and if I plant my foot in it i can see up to 1600 depending on the tune I have it on.
