    From my understanding the aluminum heads melt around 2000 degrees F.

    I havent found whats an OK target peak temp, but waiting for my upstream o2 sensor to show up as i have seen peak temps around 1500-1600 F, 500 degrees short of melting your heads cant be good. Anyone else have any ideas???

    i started a thread about this awhile ago cause i thought mine was a bit high. but tonight i was on the highway going 70 for awhile and it never hit about 1350. just cruzin around town its hardly ever over 1200. i have seen mine hit 1400 but only for a second cause my egt yelled at me to stop.
