New tunes from IDP, questions

I was running DJ's looney tune on the work truck, without studs, got erics xtreme street-mild for non studded trucks and it feels AWESOME, love everything about it, just wondering what everyones EGT's under full throttle are? Mine got to 1400* but didn't go any higher, was wondering how safe that was or if I should worry.

your SIG says you have studs? do u have them now or not? lol, the IDP tunes are for real....my truck was jsut studded about a month ago and i have not go the "studded" truck tunes yet, only about 1-15 more HP supposedly, but i take what i can get...just have not spent the $65 to get the studded tunes yet.

anything over 1250 for an extended period of time is going to hurt it. you have to hold it for over a minute though. i see 1600+ almost everyday. i cruise at 1000-1200 on the highway everyday too. 1400 at wot is not bad. its pretty hot for a stock truck but it shouldnt hurt anything unless you hold it for to long.

To clear it up, the truck in my sig is studded, the one I just got the new tunes on is a work truck, non studded, and no it does not have cat/muffler, has 4" turbo back straight pipe.

The truck is on the interstate everyday, and cruises at about 850-900, and today with the tunes, was at 900 and no higher, 1200 on the on ramp, and that's with a trailer.
