egt question/ kill story..sort of

first of my truck is programmed at the 60hp setting.. i dont have gauges yet (i'm know big mistake) but figured since i dont race or run it hard it will be safe for now... well a warning light came up yesterday. i believe it is the exhaust temp light.. at what temp does that light up?

reason it lit up was cuz as i entered the turnpike a 6.0 came up on me, he puffed some smoke, i figured i had no chance but what the hell, it will be a good benchmark..plus losing to another ford isn't too bad.. as i thought this over up comes a new DUDge.. well lets go, it step on it, a pulled slightly on the dodge but the 6.0 pulled on me (not too much so i was proud, i quickly let off the gas since i have no egt guage but too late, it lit up..hope it wasn't too late

was it a CEL, if so it was probably an overboost or ICP to high or low code. these two are common with a chip or programer. you need a MAP fooler to eliminate the over boost situation "likely culprit" for the CEL.

CEL=check engine light. If you are holding the pedal to the floor through the shifts and the light comes on it is a fuel rail pressure problem. It's not a big deal it means that the fuel pressure got low but as soon as you let off pressure went back up. If your programmer can read and clear codes you will be able to turn the light off. I know this because my dad sets the CEL off on his truck all the time.

I've set my cel off many times.. It generally throws a code, and even though I don't have a code reader, my guess is that it usually is the icp high or low just as these guys are talking about.

To my knowledge there is now factory sensor for exhaust temperature.

A boat will do that I would not worry too much. You know your truck and how it should run. If everything seems to be in order, I say rock on But def get ya some guages, you will want them if you pull that beast much.

I have found with chips, as many here have verified, the it will fire off the SES light and throw a P1211 code..totally OK, and for all intents and purposes you can ignore it. When I get a tad heavy on the "gas"..ie pulling a slight grade and loading the engine, it'll throw the light and code but within a mile or so after creasting the hill or backing off the throttle, the light clears itself. Be wary though..the P1211 code will still be there and if you take it to a shop for service, they'll replace the IPC sensor...and charge you for it. So before youy have it serviced by a shop, either tell them to ignore that code or clear the codes by disconnecting the batts first.
