EG Temps

Just wondering how the rest of you OBS guys are doing on EG Temps. I got a 97 F-350 4x4 4:10 w/ Auto, Edge CS set to tow safe, AFE Stage II, Staright pipe 4" exhaust, 3.5 down pipe and I'm seeing 450-500 at normal ops, but if I hammer it down with no tow while pulling a steep grade (west coast Steep grade) I'm reaching 1000 deg. What can I expect when I'm hauling 10K pounds??

Thanks Scott

My truck is a CA emissions 96 (AB split shots) with stock exhaust (kitty too) and DIY intake, no chip or anything else. Pulling a 3 horse trailer loaded with hay up a decent grade a few months back I was right at 1200 the whole way up. Normal cruising at 65-70 its around 800-900 IIRC. 4x4 auto with 4.10's here as well.

Tap into the Driver side Manifold.They leave a perfect spot right before the collector.

Just got back from Elk Camp, towed the little 5th wheel 7k and never went over 1100 deg on the big hills, 750-800 therwise. Pretty sure I could bump up the chip settng and still be ok. I installed the EGT on the up pipe worked great.

I have heard, that you should tap the sensor into the drivers side exhaust manifold

honestly for a stock turbo even 3.5 is alittle restricted for the the downpipe. a 4" will lower your temp considerably
