EGT temperatures normal and not normal

i think I'm about to put a pyrometer on the truck and I'm just wondering…… what are normal operating EGTs and what is considered "high"?



Dantron and bigpwr please control yourselves on this one this is not your playground.

1400 is where H&S suggests to set your defuel limit. I personally dont like it that hot so I am about to install Methanol injection on mine. I would let out of my 6.0 at 1300.

I would say 300-500 at idle to low cruising speeds, 500-800 during normal acceleration to high cruising speeds, and 800-1300 at high acceleration or wide open throttle. I'm surprised the pyrometer hasn't been setup yet. Had mine done with the EGR block plates.

By the way, I never cast the first stone. However, I tend to go straight for the jugular once I've been crossed. Do not judge, and be not judged. That's what I say..

Those numbers are pretty accurate ive been testing my truck since day one and ive found you need to TRY and hurt your truck if you want to mess it up , like wamhammer all out up a hill

Well I know the truck really doesnt like 1800 so I would say a few under that would be max, H&S suggesting a max of 1400 is pretty safe, possibly 1500.

I got into mine a bit today and it defueled at 1400 pretty quick in performance. Didn't really like it. When I am going about 80 it's at about 800 in street. Does all this sound normal. Will a mcc tune prolly be cooler running.

Your fine. H&S kinda has to say that for obvious liability reasons. Kinda like the off road only mods and carefully hot on McDonalds coffee cups. And a mcc tune will be whatever you set it as.

Melting point of standard aluminum is 1240 deg F. But these pistons are alloy with a high percentage of silicone to increase the melting point. Don't forget these engines also has piston cooling jets and since aluminum discharges heat fast , your totally fine.
Just for fun:
The low melting point of aluminium alloys has not precluded their use in rocketry; even for use in constructing combustion chambers where gases can reach 3500 K.
