egt to high

Ok so i was messing around with my truck the other night and decided that it was time to finally put my egt probe in the manifold and since i have been to lazy lol. So on level 6 and rowing through all the gears when i get to bout 70-80mph my alert for egt goes through the roof what gives i mean i hit 1500 easy and just let out of it. So what does everyone else run at wot on these 6.7? If im going to run down the track i dont want to have to feather it. I am putting an airdog 100 and hoping to have a water meth for it soon to for it so that should help a little but what else can i do to help keep this cool??? Thanks Pete

Can't help you much, because mine is post turbo. I've never seen over 900 post turbo, which I'm guessing might be 1200-1300 pre turbo. Are you sure your probe isn't actually touching the manifold?

ya cause i drilled it out and tapped it and stuck it in and pulled it back a little ways to try to insure that it was not touching. I mean cruising around at 70 it runs about 800-900 its just when i hold it wide open in 6th gear bout 2800 rpm

Yeah well, I think they are probably about right. These things still run hotter than the 5.9's, esspecially at wot. Even with the deletes, when you pin it hard, the egts will shoot right up there. Just remember they are supposedly made to handle it, but I wouldn't stay at 1500 to long.

Dude, when I had mine in level 5 with out running propane, from a dig and up to 100 my egt's would go around 1550, and that was on level 5. I set my alarm to go off at 1600 after that and never heard it again. Edge sets there default alarms pretty low.
