I am not saying it is not possible to run an engine to that high of a temp and have it survive. I am just saying that it is not good practice.
And if an engine needs to be that hot to run properly then it has some serious design flaws, or more likely the pipe is out of tune until the ex gas temp comes up. Id try different pipes on the suspect engine.
And as I was saying, I haven't used a temp gun to tune for many years now. Does that mean I'm cool and can have an engine named after me?!?
