    Anybody got EGT temps?
    We seem to be running 1500 degrees f.
    Trying to find a way to cool things down.

    What setup Stan?

    I have the EMS EGT's for each individual cylinder. I keep the EGT's down to around 1400-1420 with an AFR of 11.9 (8750 RPM's)

    Those EGT's were with pump 93 octane.

    I have been experimenting with some Race Gas here lately though. VP C12. Good chit

    Stan, welcome to our little private part of the forum called the EMS owners club

    You can add timing to bring down your EGT temps, but you will need to add fuel as well. Gotta find a happy medium to where you arent choking down your moter with too much fuel you added when adding timing.

    If you want my mapping i'll send it to you. Been a long time since i last sent it your way. Lots of changes have been made along the way

    Still can't belive an increase in timing will decrease the EGT, wow.
    I'm still thinking bigger exhaust, must be behind the times.
    DON"T RUN OXYGENATED RACE FUEL
    Ran shell gas and oxygenated race gas burned a valve.

    Yes, increasing timing lowers EGT's

    add FUEL, that will do it to lower temps.

    BUT remember the EGT is only relative to YOUR set-up. placement makes a BIG difference in your readings and others, you cant compare unless yours are exactly the same.

    also,look to see that they are the same too between cylinders.. trim fuel to balance them...
