EGT probes in VW installations

Post by cardiffrob » Sat Aug 08, 2009 12:22 pm

Has anyone any idea of the EGT limits and probe positions of VW installations? Does Aerovee or similar have a stated position for the probes (distance from valves or from head etc) and associated max EGTs.
There is obviously going to be a different figure for the EGT depending on the position of the probes and I wondered if I could copy a known installation to get accurate figures without burning out the probes.


PS Thanks, Les, for the probes and gauge!!
