1780F when I accelerated WOT to 100 mph and then I let out. Sustained while towing has always been around 1000-1100F at most.

I was worried cuz mine hits 1600 in about 6 seconds of close to WOT, on SRL+, and it's still climbing quick. Doesn't seem like a good idea to let it go any higher so WOT is almost useless right now. Gonna delete the EGR and put a 4" down pipe on and see if that has any effect.
