EGT and and Edge

My truck is a stock 96 F-250 5 speed with the basic Edge programmer in it. I just put the programmer in and love the new found power. I don't have a pyrometer, but plan on towing a 19' camper to Baja. Does anyone with a similar setup to me and a pyro ever see the EGT going into the danger zone or am I pretty safe? It's recommended to use one in the race (60 hp) and the extreme (100 hp) settingsm but I'm curious if I can expect it to get that hot.

i am running the edge in my 94 with a 5 speed my pyro climbs really fast to about a 1000 degrees then goes slow. about i week ago i brought my 97 on my gooseneck gcw was about 24k running on 60hp race tune my egt never went over 1100 and there is a fairly long grade to pull. it was near zero out though. i ran on tow tune in the summer it was easy to hit 1200 but not over. i would only go to tow tune until you get a pyro you could get into trouble being where its warmer out

EGTs can get hot quick running through So. Cal., our mountains are steep. Canned tunes can get you in trouble fast if you have no way to monitor it. Seriously think of getting at least that gauge before your trip.

Where are you in Cali?

I used an edge on tow tune and hit 14-1600 easy hauling a 97 f250 on a car trailer pulling a grade, get custom tunes or don't run the programmer at all without a gauge period, especially while towing, and x2 where at in so cal are you?

I guess I better get a pyro. I was under the impression that with the 40hp tow tune I would be safe from high EGT. My trailer isn't too heavy, maybe 1800 kg, so about half the weight of an F-250 on a car trailer.

You guys are making me laugh, I'm not in California, but I'm leaving for Baja California in Mexico in a few days. Imagine if there was a town in California called Baja? That would cause a lot of confusion! We're going to stop in Playa del Rey for a few days and San Diego, but not too long. My money goes a lot further in Mexico.

Your location to the right of your name suggests "Sunshine Coast". Going deeper into your profile I see you are from BC. Sorry for the mix-up.

If you go farther we call it San Diego, don't get much closer to Mexico w/o being in Mexico, not my ideal place for vacation but then again I've never been there either

I think I've been down there 6 times since 2010. Four of those trips were flights and hotels in Cabo, but twice I rode my Beta 450 dirt bike from San Diego to Cabo and back. I love riding my dirt bike and down there it's some of the best I've seen. No rules, no problems and lots of good people. It's a zoo around the border so the faster I can get away from there the better. I've met a ton of Americans and Canadians who have been going down there for years. I could go on and on about how awesome it is, but considering it's raining and about 40 degrees here for the next 4 months, it's not a hard decision.
