Average EGTs

What are yall seeing for cruising on the freeway EGTs on your DELETED trucks? I have had a few diesel trucks all with straight engines though and the EGTs on the ford seem to be alil high maybe im paranoid though.

Like any diesel engine the faster you turn the motor the more airflow you'll get, lowering the EGT's. Th higher rears and double overdrive means the engine is turning much slower.

I just used it cuz the Sinister kit comes with the port already drilled into the block off plate which made it very easy to throw my Edge EGT probe in and as a matter of fact the OEM PreCat EGT probe is stuck into the pipe that is suppose to be there so im sure its fairly accurate.
