What temperature on average should a boosted focus be running at. The EGT reads from the beginning of the downpipe. Mine reads 400 at idle then 600-800 on normal city driving and when im acc it goes from 900-1200(hard acceleration). are these numbers to hot?

Nope, BIGGEST thing you are going to see in temp diffs is where the probe is mounted. I read like 900-1000 at idle. Under HARD FULL like 6th gear 130mph+ pulls for me im right at 1400 and a lil above. Crusing onthe highway im at like 1250-1300. In the city driving im at like 1100+. These are for a Highly modded NA SVT. As far as a Boosted ZX3 im not too sure, but I wouldnt be worried about those temps. My probe is in #3 CYL. 2inches from the head.
