To clarify, AFTER the turbo charger, probe in the exhaust pipe 6" past the flange. If you can plumb up a cac, fuel can be turned up to supply 15#s of boost, other wise, with out cac you should keep the fuel limited to egt's readings of 1000 degrees max on a hard climb. Been there, done that and got to replace head gaskets.
