EGT probe location

Looking for EGT probe locations for a Racepak unit on my XLT with triple SLP pipes have heard several different numbers between 4" from piston skirt to 9" from piston skirt. Racepak literature says 4" when using stock exhaust system but says that probably is different with aftermarket pipes. If anyone has experience please post or email me. Thanks!!

Re: EGT probe location

call the manufacturer of your pipes or the manufacturer (dealer) for your sled, they will have the info in the race manual. If you don't have one it is one of the best expenses you will ever suffer. The info in there is irreplaceable!

Re: EGT probe location

yeah, I agree... the location isn't that critical IF YOU KNOW THE TEMPS it's suppose to be running at--at that location. I would contact either the aftermarket pipe company or the gage company (even both) so you know where they should be and what temp they should run at. I had triples probes on my FIII 600 and I mounted them 6" from the exhaust manifold and looked for temps around 1100 degrees at WOT--recommended by FAST. I am not positive those are the correct numbers (no longer have the sled) but I never did have a problem with the equipment.

Definitely contact someone who knows about that engine and pipe combo...

Re: EGT probe location

Hey Bogey
I had a 97xc600 with slp triples and I bought the pipes used. I phoned SLP and they told me to position the probe 6.5-7in
from the flange and do not go over 1300 degrees. Hope this helps. Vince

Re: EGT probe location

See if this one gets censored? Egt's should be at the hottest part of the pipe. Use a light even coat of semi hi temp paint on the y pipe, See wheres it starts burning off first. If possible this would be your best spot. Do this AFTER ballpark jetting as this spot will change some with fuel flow. Jet to pistonwash/ plug burn/ y pipe color and then use you egt temps as a reference, not the other way around.
