6.0 diesel operating limits

I installed a edge perfromance module on 2006 F-250. I blew a head gasket about three days ago. I think I set some of the safety parameters to high on the module. I was wondering if someone knows or know how to get the operating limits for the engine such as max EGT,max turbo boost,max engine temp etc.

I would keep it below 1400s EGTs for extended periods (short track bursts are OK, I hit 1440s), boost I would stay below 35lbs that way you should be safe, and the coolant you want below 220 if possible.

Also watch the tranny temps on hard runs or if you tow. Keep it below 210 I believe.

I wouldn't get EGTs over 1200 if it were me. I have heard of people hitting 1500 for a split second but once you replace a melted turbo, you'll not do that again unless you have time and money to burn.
Boost....35 is pushing the limit in my mind...32 would be safer.
But then again i have an 03 and headbolts are more elastic on the 03s.

i've pulled grades in the middle of the hot summer and run 1250* pre-turbo for extended periods.. 30 psi for stock bolts on that motor is the high limit..
i've run with coolant temp at 236* when i'm pulling hard!!
