Help with EGT Gague

Need some help I installed my gagues last weekend and my EGT reading, when truck is off sits around 150 deg? Is this O.K. or did I do something wrong? Could I be seeing incorrect temp readings with it this way?
Thanks
Andy

It will also be dependent on which gauges he has, my ISSPRO Pyro sits at 0 with the key off or on, until the motor is running, then it climbs to 300 while idling.

Early in the morning when the outside temp is 45-50 deg. F, I get within 2-3 degrees of that. When it's the afternoon and the sun is hitting the hood, it is about 125-150 deg.

Help with EGT Gague

I have autometer. This morning it was about 55deg. and when I turned on key it went to 125deg. Do you think I have sensor in too deep and its touching manifold? I tapped hole with 1/8 NPT. My buddy's goes to zero when he turns on his key.
Thanks
Andy

You might want to adjust the probe. When I installed mine, I pushed it in until the tip was at the bottom of the fittings and made a mark with a sharpie on the probe, then I installed the fittings and pushed it in as far as it would go, made a mark with a sharpie, and pulled the probe out, and split it in the middle and that was the depth I set it to so that the probe was dead middle of the runner.
