EGT Temps?

I have an 06 with an intake and 4" turbo back exhaust with the cat, on the stock setting on my chip i am seeing about 350 degrees at idle and 700-950 while crusing on the freeway with no load and not under heavy acceleration does this sound normal?

Mine will run hotter just normal driving stock. However, it doesnt get as hot stock when I really get on it as the tune.

So like just normal take off from the line its 200 or so hotter and stock will go to 1000 degrees or so.
Tuned it will reach 1300+ but not as hot just cruising

350 idling, 600-900 crusing dependant on speed, uphill etc. I can peg 1300 on a hard accel run. Tuned. 750-850 is the most typical crusing on flat ground with the stock exhaust and gutted cat.

U can run 1200 all day long. Much north of 1250 is pushing it sustained though. Short bursts probably would be ok.
