No specific max temp that I know of. Relationship between cylinders is the biggie.

Probe placement can easily account for the difference you are seeing.

Tell us more about the engine.

The absolute value of the EGT has no useful meaning.
That's why there is normally no marking on a EGT indicator.
Some turbocharged engines combine EGT with TIT. Only then the value has some relevance with respect to the TIT.
For further explanation:
