    Its tuff using that because all of the different cylinders will run a different temp. I would say it is more practicle on a carburated engine.

    Those gauges are for turbo application's. You need your egt temp's to be cool before you turn your engine off otherwise you could damage your turbo.

    Not necessarily. Lots of guys use them on different apps. , but it would definnitly be benifical for Turbo apps.
