I hooked up individual EGT's more to play with then anything. I spent an enormous amount of time calibrating them in a Kiln.

When I ran the engine at a set RPM I found 1/2 the cylinders running temps over 2x the others. I thought my equipment was set up wrong. I swapped probes. The swapped probes showed the same temps.

After looking at the headers I realized the firing order and pairing were causing back pressure in 1/2 the cyl. The headers were built from scratch and I had them ceramic coated......so they will look nice on the wall when I hang them.

When the car is painted, I have another set to try. I am not getting these coated till I test them.
