Where do your EGT's sit on a long road trip?

I just got back from doing a road trip and was wondering where everyones EGT's sat when there going down the highway and doing a good hillclimb.
Mine were usually sitting around 6 just cursing along the road. I would have to work the gears on a climb to keep it around or below 8 on the gauge. How do you keep them low? My EGT's seam to climb quickly on a hillclimb so I have to gear down, and I see other diesels fly by me sometimes.

Are you running an intercooler? Also the 315's make the engine work harder.

No intercooler, I have water/meth injection which I usually put on before a climb.

800° is nothing to worry about (unless maybe you have your probe in the down pipe?) Typical cruise is around 600-700, if its on a grade at all probably 800-900. 4.10 gears, 4x4, auto, Cali emissions 96, DIY intake and stock exhaust.

i dont know about empty, since 85% of the time I'm driving my truck, the Lightning is behind it on the trailer.

In my tow tune, flat ground 75mph with L on back in 5th gear runs around 850 daytime, 700 night. up a small hill, it might hit 1000, but the EGT's WILL NOT get over 1250 in my tow tune no matter what I do.

I had Tony do all my tunes in person, and my tow tune is 100% clean to avoid covering the Lightning in soot. So it doesn't run too hot either.

Specs are:
Full Force Stage 1's
D66
True Custom TW Tunes
Tymar Intake
3" DP
4" Diamond Eye Straight Pipe
7.3L Intercooler w/ banks piping kit
3.55's and 315's w/ ZF5 tranny

1996 F-350 - Big Bad Tow Rig 2
1993 F-150 Lightning - Street/Strip Toy - Supercharged Stroker
