You can spike your temps much higher than that. I have seen and heard or 2000* temps in a 1/4 mile . Personally I have only seen 1600*

You don't want to hold it above 1300 for extended times, even with your studs. The temp limit is due to the melting point of the pistons. Cylinder pressures are much higher at these temps, natually the studs will help keep the heads connected to the block

As a general rule, 1200 is a limit for sustained temps. Short spikes of temps can hit well beyond 1300, just don't hold it for too long. My 06 will bury the egt at 1500 on a hard run to highway speeds, just have to let it cool down and use some common sense.

btw..hold the alt key and type in 0176 to get the degree symbol.

I hit 1700* in the 1/4. 1300* is fine as long as its not for a sustaioned period like like say more than 30secs. When you say spike do you mean it goes from like 600 right to 1200?

where in oklahoma are ya from?
