Well I just wrapped up installing my new Glowshift gauges (I know, not the best brand, but they were recommended to me at the time). So far they are functioning great, and I just had a few questions for anybody else who is running gauges. I am trying to decide if I am getting reasonable numbers on the gauge. About the truck: 2000, F-250, 130,xxx miles, Napa 6637 intake, stock tires, exhaust (for now
) pretty minor mods so far.
Outside air temp was 67 degrees while I was testing
The truck is my daily driver, no towing or heavy loads for the most part.
At idle, EGT
reads roughly 250, boost 0
At WOT EGT
reads roughly 900, boost 16 (about 3100 RPM)
At 60 mph, EGT
runs anywhere from 400-500 degrees depending on if I am going up or down hills or on level ground. Boost sits right at 4 PSI
On a 15 mile test run, trans temp ran up to 140 at the most.
I thought the boost seemed low, so I ran another test with the boost line hooked up to a tester, and also got 15-16 PSI
. Do these numbers seem to be pretty much in range for my setup? Any feedback would be much appreciated!
