EOT seems low...

I finally got a chance to hook up my monitoring device and after a long run unloaded at approx 88-91 degrees ambient air temp, the EOT never eclipsed 94 degrees. Coolant temps stayed at 192-194, but rose to 198 in REGEN. Scanned for DTCs but were none. Am I missing something here or is this how it is? Just seems like there is NO way the EOT can be that low...

I got my Blackstone report back and all the levels are at or well below average with 196,000 miles...no fuel or coolant at all...so I know the motor is healthy.

08 F350 6.4 STOCK

Ideas???

What device are you using? I have the Scan Gauge II and you have to manually enter a ton of digits to setup each monitoring point. Maybe you just mistyped something?

As stated above what moniter are you using? If you are using an sct I believe they read differently.

Using an SCT TSX8900... Its locked but I just wanted it for the gauges. I got it cheaper than a SGII so I didn't care it was locked. Does it need to be updated maybe...or can it even be updated as its been discontinued?

I set the high limit at 230...

Sct reads coolant in F and oil in C. I'm pretty sure.

BINGO!! I was beginning to wonder this as soon as I posted yesterday, but just didn't go do the conversion... Why on earth would they do that?????

94C = 201.2F
92C = 197.6F

Looks like I need to lower my HIGH limit then!!!

Thanks for the help fellas!!! Now if I could just get my tuner dilemma ironed out so I can install my EGR delete and exhaust, I'd be doing great!!
