No, it's bad, but depending on grade and other environmental factors that would make the engine work harder, hitting 1600 at 50 mph may not be out of the realm of normal occurance.

Not only will an intake really not help like an exhaust will as far as EGTs go, it is highly advised not doing an intake on a 6.0 with just a tuner.

Just depends on rpm's and stuff but that seems high to me, unless its still in overdrive or something at the turbo isn't making any boost... what do your egt's look like at 70?

single turbo'd 6.4
