EGT temp with SCT ?

I just installed my SCT Xcal 2 with ID tunes and I am running the xtream street tune. The power is awesome but if I floor it by the time I get to the top of third gear my egt gauge is almost pegged out at 1500 degrees. Is this normal? what temp is to high? As soon as I let off it drops down of course, but I was wondering if this is what your trucks do. I have a K&N intake and 4" banks turbo back exhaust.

My truck will hit 1600* on Extreme race. Your playing with fire doing it, but some trucks may never have an issue, while others will pop a HG in no time. I have been lucky, and only get the EGT's that hot on rare occasion. SHort bursts of temps that high SHOULD be ok, I emphasize the word SHOULD

pre. driver side exhaust manifold. that is where you want it. gives you a fairly accurate temp reading. should be fairly universal to the other side of the block.

Its actually good to do once in a while because of the variable vein turbo the 6.0 has. cleans the fins and veins out. the only prob is on the 6.0 is the EGR cooler will pop if gets too hot, theres no telling when either. also headgaskets.....
