What if you kept EGT below 1300? Towing heavy on some steep climbs I'd want egt 1100-1200 max. I would never feel comfortable running higher egts, unless truck was a dedicated puller with monotherms.
Being able to have big power and keep your foot in it power wise is the main reason many of us look at the hybrid turbos. ie having the turbo keep EGTs in check using the vgt technology. Other option is compounds, but on a 6.0L its not as simple due to space.
