you will need proper 1500c thermocouples like the ones used in industrial kilns with stainless braided harness.. the exhaust shouldn't run that hot but you need heavy duty thermocouples.

Autometer have a part number for thermocouples to go with their EGT gauges.
pretty sure the gauges read to 2000F.
