Hi, read an article that said turbo diesel engine tuning is limited mainly buy exhaust gas temps - too much boost = melted engine, as opposed to petrol turbo engines that suffer from detonation when running high boost

So does anyone use an exhaust gas temp sensor as part of their tuning?

Thinking of doing the 1.9 power mods and maybe I can run higher boost if I monitor exhause gas temps?

EGT Kits are widely avaliable......... depends i guess if you are going to have adaptable boost control And be tuning out of the confines of a Tuners workshop ;)

I'd say it would depend on how far your looking at pushing your transporter. If your going down the fairly normal route that other people have with the same engine then I wouldn't worry about it but if you were going to go as far as hybrid turbos, massive boost, etc etc then i'd look into it.
