The DashDAQ does not have a max reading of 1760 for the egt's. I've asked DrewTech this some time ago. The reason you are not seeing higher readings is that it's limited by the sensor according to DrewTech, and not by the DashDAQ. I tow often, and many times real heavy, 21,000-22,000. Running the 210 on flat ground at around 60mph I see my egt's around 1050-1150. Going up small hills here in Texas my egt's are running above 1200, and sometimes in the 1300's. Attached is a log file pulling around 22,000 (hay and trailer) going up a small hill. Speed was under 60mph and egt's were from 1228-1290. Take a look at the log file, you'll see that I'm monitoring 17 different parameters.
If you really want to see how high your egt's run on these trucks, then monitor it with your DashDAQ during a regen. On my wife's truck going around 30mph through a small town before we tuned it during a regen I saw temperatures on an average starting from around 1290-1425 by the time I hit 70mph. If these engines can handle a regen going 60+ mph towing a trailer then I see no problem with 1300. I am considered adding a water injection system on the truck to help cool it down some. Just haven't figured out at which boost pressure I want it to come on. I'm considering around 18 pounds of boost, since when I'm towing it always above that....
