no defuels here

if you're going to run 1350* defuel, you might as well run it on a 60hp tune all the time IMO

Why would you have to do that.

If I was going to do a tranny relearn I would turn off the defuel or if I raced my truck but I run it there for what it is - a safety defuel for when I'm not paying attention or my wife is driving my truck.

if you use the power available, you're going to go over 1350* EGT easily. it will then defuel to the lowest level. so why not just run it on the lowest level?

I guess I see what you mean. I just run it on wild and hot all the time because it gets me the best mileage for all the highway driving that I do.

Not to hijack, but while we are on this subject, what are generally considered 'turbo friendly' short duration EGT's? I have seen 1450 a couple of times doing a 40-80 roll on while hopping onto the freeway. On my old 7.3, 1350 degrees was smoking hot lol. But I do understand that these 6.4's are built to take that kind of heat better.

theres nothing wrong with setting defuels that low. thats what run it at. keeps me from breaking parts or blowing the motor.
