Best ways to lower egt

Postby dangerous » Wed Jun 17, 2020 8:16 pm

Hey guys, hey look its proberly been said before but I'm going to ask anyway.
TD42.. With turbo, now climbing a hill it will often hit 600, I'm thinking that's getting up there, thing is I'm looking at toeing a camper trailer around and worried egt will go to high.

What are the best ways to lower the egt, Intercooler? Better radiator? Something else?

Change down a gear, back off the gas a bit, fit big air cooler , but temp still gets up

can you describe exactly where the EGT probe is located?
ie if it is in the collection point of the exhaust manifold (as opposed to the exhaust down pipe ) then 600 is not that high. In my opinion.

The only way to lower egt is to add more air or remove fuel.

Does it have an intercooler?

600°c pre turbo is nothing to worry about
