3300 egt in a 601

howdy just got the mgl ems installed in my 601 powered by 3300. Never had a cht or egt monitoring. Surprised to see a decent spread on the cht between 280, and 320 f.

Hi Jeff.  Thanks for reaching out to me.  I have been disassembling fuselage to incorporate the B mod.  Uncovered a couple of mistakes to repair to be in accordance with the drawings.  Having fun.  I would like to see your plane sometime to see how some things go together, if you wouldn't mind.
