Questions!!!

I installed a 4" Silverline 304SS exhaust w/ muffler, a aFe stage 2 dry intake, and running Superchip 1855 on light tow mode. I just bought a pillar mount
3 gauge set from Autometer. I havent installed them yet. What temps and boost should I see if all is good w/ my setup? What is too hot? (boost, Pyro and trans temps).
Thanks. Wolfman

max boost you will see might be 22psi unless you have boost fooler

1300 temp is pushing it but that wide open throttle for a bit

normal driving is around 500-900 for me, deonds on how my foot likes it

So.. about 1300 would be my "RED LINE"? How about trans temp?
Thanks.

if i remember 270 is "REDLINE" anything above that is burning your transmission, boost 22-25, but don't expect to see more then 8-16 unless u got mods in it, like turbo, injectors, boost fooler. also EGT depends on where you put the probe. if its after ur turbo on your downpipe. 300-600 is normal mines right there and never sees over 700 but when im driving through the hill its peaks almost 900. but back to the point.. if its after ur turbo, also add 400* onto what the gauge says and that will be in the ballpark of what your EGT is before the turbo... overall. put it before the turbo lol..

Tans fluid will start to brake down at 215F but it takes awhile at that temp to fry it. try not to go over 220 for any length of time. I have only seen 210 once on mine, and then I put in the bigger 6.0 cooler, never gotten past 180 now and thats at 26000# GVW.

Think of 215-220 max on trans,but try not to get that high if you can
If I stand down on mine-I'll hit 26 lbs. boost-but I have a boost fooler-which means I'll be rebuilding at some point-just don't know when.
EGT pyro is in ex. manifold,before turbo-hard running has yet to exceed 900-but that's without 10,000 lb. camper hooked up,haven't done that test yet.

I've seen 215 on trans and stopped. Usually 180 towing, 150 unloaded.
EGT probe should be in manifold because you're protecting the pistons and turbo. Not the DP. I have barely seen 1250 pulling a trailer up a steep hill.1000 if I really push it hard unloaded

Just got back from the mountains this weekend-whew!
Never towed through that kind of terrain before
I have hills where I am-but nothing like these
Went up through some super steep hills that seemed to never end and hairpin turns,
and ran the **** out of that truck-I don't think carbon is any where to be found inside now
Anyway-trans temp never got above 160,EGT's only topped at 1,100
I thought I did pretty good with 11,000 lbs behind me
Oh-forgot to add ---
I totally smoked a Duramax up on of them-Then slowed down to let him catch up-then smoked him again and he had smaller a trailer
I could see him beating on his steering wheel!

I love my truck!
