I have a Greddy EGT gauge on my car that reads in degrees C. It red lines from 1000 to 1200 degrees C which is 1832 and 2192 degrees F respectively. The turbo's max turbine inlet temperature is 1500 degrees F, which is lower than the redline. From an engineering stand point, 1500 degrees F makes sense as far as the max TIT, however, 2192 degrees F is hotter than what most jet engines see. According to the gauge the turbo should have crapped out long ago. Should I be seeing such high temps? it doesnt make sense. Anyone now the normal EGTs I should be seeing?
