hypothetically

OK so lets just say u lost your temper, punched it, and hauled *** around a jackazz doin 45 merging onto a 75mph highway. In your fit of rage you kinda lost track of EGTs for a second or two and noticed it was climbing to 1600 before you were able to drop a load in your shorts and back out of the throttle. Hypothetically speaking, would this bad? Also, hypothetically speaking ofcourse, my boost is lower than before FML

Your boost is probably lower because you developed a boost leak. Boost leak will also translate to higher EGTs. Looking at your mods, I see no reason why the truck would even get up to 1600. I don't think I could get mine that high if I tried, and I have roughly the same mods. Was your truck always that easy to peg the EGT?

Definitely check for boost leaks first. Oh and running that temp for only a few seconds shouldn't hurt anything... I know a guy with injectors who doesn't know the meaning of "high egts" and he has yet to have a problem.

Since you just tickled at such a high temp, you don't have much to worry about. It's when you hold it at a high temp that things go bad.

1600 degrees shouldn't be doable with your mods. I'd bet you have a boost leak. Those temps won't hurt anything if they were only for a short duration.

Well i tore down my pipes. Cleaned everything. Did a foil delete and reinstalled everything. Ol' girl runs ALOT better. I havent had her on the highway yet but man shes got more haul in her fat azz. Has anyone had an issue with too much oil in their intercoolers? Whould it cause an issue later on? I did the best i could at getting the glue off the pipe but i dont have a comp in my shop yet. So I took some fiberglass tapr and gave it a quick wrap. Looks ok for me

You need a crank case ventilation mod to reduce the oil in the intake and intercooler
