Operating ranges

I just made a round trip through the mountains to get hay and installed my gauges just before the trip. Going over empty tran was 160, EGT peaked at 1200 @ 20 psi going up a steep grade. Coming back with 3000 pounds in the bed, trans was about the same , EGT hit 1200 once, the rest of the time 800-1000. I was real happy with the performance but wondering if this is a normal range. I am fixing to tow my 10000 5th wheel and want to know what to expect

Thanks. I have a 97 F250. Mods are cat delete, tymar, gauges, amsoil bypass, coolant filter, kicker stereo...etc. No performance mods except tymar. And I just checked the mileage and I got 16.89 with 3000 pounds in the bed! Normally I get 20-21

Sounds about normal temps stock. You will see 1300 EGTs on really long steep hills just try to stay out of it.

1300? I always thought 1100-1150 was redline for any duration. Is there some sort of transient limitation? for example 1300 for less than 1 minute or 1500 for less than 30 seconds. Turbine engines have these kinds of limitations.
