The melting point of aluminum is 1220.6 °F, so keep it under that and you will be fine.

depends If you have the EGT probe in the manifold then your temps are direct so 1300 you do not wana pass. However The temps are normally 300 degrees cooler after the turbo so if your probe is after the turbo in the DP then you dont wana go over 1000-1100. But JSchuricht is right the melting point of alum is 1220

True, but the piston are constantly being cooled by the oil jets. EGT are measuring air temps. Which will be higher than the base metal of the pistons.

That all being said, Keeping EGT below 1300* id a good idea.
