    Rain + EGT Gauge = Haywire?

    It seems like whenever it's raining fairly hard by EGT gauge goes berserk. I have no idea if there is some electrical problem going on here or if the cold water is messing with the temperature probe or what...

    Anybody experience this? Any fixes that work?

    it's most likely a shorting/grounding problem where your EGT wires connect to your sensor. I say this because i used to have dual A/F gauges on my Stang go berserk when it rained. Turned out that the wire crimps hold water droplets and the sensitive gauge doesn't like that. See if you can shrink-wrap the connections and see if it helps next time it rains.
