I always try to keep my egt's under 1200, I've seen 1400 once after racing a duck 695 for about 7 miles. As far as engine temp goes around town it struggles to stay above 185, on the hiway @ 80 mph it sits right around 205. All of this is with the ppe big tune empty. If I haul anything I go to level 3.josh2888 said:OOPs how hot is to hot on a diesel ? kinda feel stupid askin but what the hell im new lol :shrug:
yea 1600 is a lil bit to hot there is just no way at all you can run 1600 all day long. i pulled my truck with no gauges and i would hate to see what the temp was on that. i watched the movie after and almost cryed it. the site is www.whitesulphurgarage.com if you want to check it out. my dyno run is on there too.1600 even in the exhaust manifold is just way too high!!!!!!
