Ok, I searched the forum and came up with this:
"Rule of thumb, 1600F is a pretty reasonable "max" for cruise or boost."
And this http://www.miataturbo.net/forum/show...temperature%22
which tells its better to use a bung near the car as oposite to the location just off the turbo.
since i'll be retarding from 12 to 6 with a MSD, on a 1º per pound of boost scale, and this brings the EGT to higher temperatures, the question is:
Can a AEM Wideband 02 deal with the heat if placed just a bit below the turbo? Tony told me he made the bung a bit down for FM Heat Shield clearance, but it will still be close. Or as a general rule, it should always be placed further away?
I'm just asking cause from what i read before, as the EG go into the DP and expand, they cool off, therefore in my understanding this would cause misreadings from the wideband? Or am i just talking ****, and the location down below is not a problem and my wideband can still give me accurate info?
