Normal EGT's ???

Now that i have a livewire 5015 with EGT sensor, i was wondering what EGT's are normal for a truck with a programmer and a TBE. It seems like even running the truck hard as soon as it idles its down to 350 immediately. I just remember my Cummins taking up to a min to get below 400 sometimes. Do these 6.0's run colder than other diesel?

Outside air temperature has a lot to do with it. I notice my truck drops below 400F REAL fast when it is like 50-60F outside after driving around and coming to an idle where it takes as long as 5 mins in the summer time when it is over 100F out.

X2. I religiously shut down at 400*, winter spool down is quicker and my cruise EGT is a little lower in the colder weather. In the summer, shut down the AC first or it will take forever to get back down to 400*.

Normally it will not go right down to 350 immediately, as you've mentioned. It usually will take several seconds to drop after driving. The 6.0L's typically run slightly hotter than the older 7.3's.

What bout anyone with a 6 speed? Mine will easily drop below 200*, Heck coasting down the mountains it'll drop to 100*.

Something's wrong with the reading. Idling it should be no lower than 275

Mine behaves exactly as karls03 described. Coasting downhill I will see mid to upper 200s with an instant spike of 400+ when you roll back into the fuel. What gauge are you reading off of? I have the Edge EAS on my CTS.
