EGT temps?

What are safe running EGT temps? I assume there is a standard safe range on the EGT's? truck is an 06 F350 DRW 6.0L.

1250 is what i've heard is a safe level, but i've also heard you can run it up to 1350-1400 just don't leave it there for very long

You can run 1250 for as long as you want with no issues other than a high fuel bill. Over that is iffy, there are a lot of factors involved with how long you can run it over 1250 without damaging anything.

I have buried my 1500 degree pyro numerous times though with no issues.

Yall have convinced me. I am going to set my alarm on my evo to go off at 1200 degrees, especially since I am now running SCT tunes.
