Turbo Saturn EGT help

  1. This might just be a stupid thread. What is the highest EGTs i can safely run
    in my 1.9L? and what should it be at idle? Cruising 3000rpm? I think
    mine might be high, i know alluminum melts at 1350F and under high load-high
    rpm with good AFRs i can hit 1500F. At idle it is 800F. WTF Post your EGTs
    for me and every other concerned saturn turbo owner that doesn't know how to
    use their pyrometer correctly.

    Post your EGTs for me and every other concerned saturn turbo owner that
    I'd be surprised if any turbocharged Saturn owners regularly read this

    When the forums at http://www.turbosaturns.net used to be in working order,
    I recall seeing people say that EGTs should be kept below 1600. That's
    about all I can remember. You may want to do some searching on
    http://www.saturnfans.com, or http://www.saturnspot.com forums. Also, the
    guys at http://www.differentracing.com are running a pretty nice turbo setup
    and doing some impressive things with it at the track. I believe they were
    in the 11s in the quarter with nitrous on their SL2 before they did the
    turbo build. Send them an e-mail (if the answer isn't already on their
    forums) and they'll surely be able to help you out.
