EGT Questions

I have an 06 f-250 with Volant air intake and 4" turbo back duals. Truck is stock other than that. What kind of EGT should I be getting with the truck how it is now? I am thinking of adding an SCT Livewire, how much will the EGT go up with that? I am just curious, it seems like these trucks sure have very high EGT's.

With the things you have now, your truck probably isnt seeing to high EGT's with it beeing stock... Once you add the SCT, you will easily be able to see 1500. It just depends on what tunes you have and how youdrive...

x2.... EGT's will likely be very low - under 1,000 in most cases, even at WOT.

Looks like they've got ya set - but you can see why you would need guages when throwing tunes on there as EGTs can skyrocket!

Talking EGT's

Most Trucks that run an OEM tune are limited to 1200*-1250*F By FORD programming. If you are going to be doing any towing with a modified ECM, it is imperative that you monitor your EGT's.
More on this to follow, I have to go right NOW.

I've seen 1250 on mine while towing up a hill at WOT with the stock tune.

With my SCT set to Innovative's "Tow/Aggressive, under the same conditions, I've seen 1350.

And set on "Extreme Street", I've seen 1600.

i never really got over 1000 with stock tuning, but now i need a bigger pyro. mine pegs out at 1500 and with my current flash, i can peg it out in just a few seconds, and that scares me cause i know that once you hit around 1600 and things start melting that it will shoot to 2000 almost instantaneously !! who makes a 2000 degree pyro ??

I know you're talking diesels but on gas motors the rule is not to exceed 1600 degrees. Thats what OEM calibrators aim for.

i would not stay above 1400 for any extended period of time.
it's a general rule you can keep it at 1250 all day, but i see over 1400 often
