  1. EGT a bit high on cyl#1

    Volkswagen Passat B7 Discussion
    Hi all. I have tried searching and haven't really found anyone that has said anything related to a 13 passat tdi. On the drive to work and home, 1 hour each way, I have been getting consistently higher EGTs on cylinder 1. 200 difference minimum, but as high as 400 difference. I have seen it up...
  2. Tapping for EGT probe

    B5 Garage
    Hey guys I was wondering if anyone has installed a EGT sensor on their passat. I have a 2001.5 v6 with a supercharger so I decided it is time for some way to monitor my EGT. I was wondering if anyone has drilled directly into the stock headers or any piping right before the cat. I'm not sure...
  3. Read boost and egt with an xgauge?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I have an 04 Passat 1.8 turbo 4motion and a scangaugeII. There is info about ISO protocol xgauges up on the scangauge site. For example, for cat temp it says set txd=68 6a f1 01 3c, rxf=04 41 05 3c 00 00, rxd=2810, mth=00 09 00 32 ff d8 and name=ctf. This doesnt give anything as an xgauge, BUT...
  4. EGT or AFR gauge?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Tuning by using an Exhaust Gas Temperature gauge or a wideband Air/Fuel Ratio gauge? Which is the best way to go and why?

  6. Pre and post turbine EGT measurements on GTRS elim

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So now that I installed my pre-turbine EGT probe I thought I'd post some quick figures. 20 PSI at redline I'm seeing 1500-1550 pre-turbine at the inlet and about 1400 post turbine by the cat flange. I'm pretty happy with these temps. I was expecting to see a little over 1600 under full boost...
  7. Missing gauge connector & anyone w/pics of EGT installed on 1.8t?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Getting ready to install the EGT but want to see where everyone else has actually tapped in to the manifold. I'm looking for an easier way to do it without removing a ton of stuff. I did it on my TDI but that was when it was dismantled for a half rebuild. Additionally, I lost the connector...
  8. EGT questions

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    So I got my EGT sensor set up and bombed around town seeing what my EGT's would do. I'm averaging about 1200F. If I really stand on it (i.e. full 2nd and 3rd at max boost) I'm seeing about 1350-1400F which drops to 1200 as soon as I let off. As far as I know 1600F is where things start to melt...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    i've searched for an install thread for an egt gauge, but haven't been able to locate one... has anyone seen one? more importantly though, am i wrong in my assumption that an egt gauge is the best way to monitor my turbo temp? i want to let it cool adequately, but want to avoid going the...
  11. EGT Sensors, Needed ? Gauges ?

    New Member Introductions
    Ok, definetly a noob to the gasser turbo cars. I do have a Jetta tdi and very familiar with that aspect. The question: Is it recommended to monitor exhaust gas temperature on a Passat 1.8t with a Wett Chip? My car came with it and from what I know on the diesel side of things the temps can...

  13. Custom EGT Gauge Design to compliment the InDash Boost Gauge

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I am in the process of designing an LED EGT Gauge. Can you all help with temperature ranges etc? Also does anyone know where I can source some Type K EGT Probes. 1/8 NPT would be good. Thanks Ian
  14. Witch is better?? Air/fuel gauge, or EGT gauge??

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I'm trying to decide with would be a better air/fuel monitoring system. Ive heard that the autometer air/fuel ratio gauge isn't really all that usefull for tunning, due to the fact that it uses the factory o2 sensor. But since the probe for the EGT gauge has to be put in the down pipe, instead...
  15. bentley people need help, where to find EGT sensor

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
