EGT's

I have a 2000 C/C 4x4 6" lift, 35" tires truck..... has 120K, never used to pull anything.

I purchased the truck not to long ago, came with a Banks powepack system(upgraded intercooler)


Now i see a max of 25pounds of boost (needle pins at 25 and can stay there)...

but i have yet to see anything above 850 on my EGT's.... of course this is with no load (2 quads in the back, tool box and 6 people) on some steep hills with boost at 15+ the for miles at a time....

Does this mean i can probably get a bigger chip? (still on the stock tranny) or ...

Yes you can get a bigger chip. I suggest you go custom tune. Twildman, TS performance, Elite Diesel, DP Tuner, something along those lines.

If its Banks... I can bet with 90% certanty that your pyro is post turbo... That means you are running about 1100-1200 pre turbo... maybe more maybe less... Check and see where your pyro is. Is it in the down pipe? or in the exhaust manifold.

If it is on the down pipe I would relocate it on the manifold. It is more accurate on the manifold.

Got to be in the exhaust manifold... Post turbo temps tell you NOTHING. They can be differant by as little as nothing or as much as 400-500 degrees... here is a pic of what a post turbo pyro can do for you...
