Where abouts in Australia are you? I am just outside Brisbane.
I have a 2001 7.3 with the 4R100 but have quite a few mods so my data may not be of much help to you. I run synthetic transmission fluid and use the truck almost exclusively for towing. I have never seen over 150 deg. transmission temp.
When towing 2.5 tonnes on the flat, boost is under 5psi. Mine will run up to about 28 psi. [MAP fooler and ATS Compressor housing] with the boot into it.
My pyro sender is in the l/h manifold and shows about 350 deg. at idle. I limit my EGT to about 1200 deg. by either backing off the throttle or going down a gear, you should notice a drop in EGT's as you increase revs.
Good to see another Aussie on the forum. I see a lot of 250's on the road when travelling the east coast and often think it would be good to form a group in Australia.
