Am I going to melt something important?

I installed new ISSPRO gauges to replace the glowshift gauges that were in my truck when I bought it. Yesterday while towing my boat I noticed my EGTs were at the redline (1200+) while pulling a hill. How long can I hold this temp before bad things start to happen? I haven't pulled my 5th wheel camper yet, but at 9000lbs that's got to be a whole lot worse. I should mention that this truck has stage 2 injectors in it. Maybe that's what is causing the high EGT? Or maybe the chip itself? Can anyone give me some advice? Thanks

1250 and higher than that, and you're risking melting something the longer and higher you go from there.

S&B intake
OK, not bad

4" turbo back exhaust w/muffler
GOOD!

wicked wheel
shouldnt affect anything except surge

chip is stock, high idle, 40hp tow, 60hp tow, 80hp tow, 80hp street perf.
what setting was it on when this happened?

Auto trans.
hmm...

stage 2 injectors
This "could" be part of the problem...

everything else is stock

This isn't sounding to good for me

it could be something as simple as your PYRO sending unit/gauge is malfunctioning... I just dont see a reason why your EGT's would be that high with such a small load

I was running in the 60hp tow. I usually run in the 80hp tow. But it blows to much black smoke for me.

The injectors wouldn't surprise me. The truck runs like crap about the first couple of minutes when it is started.

So you don't have a turbo to support those injectors and give enough fuel.

I think you are overfueling with large injectors and dont have enough air...

Bigger turbo....
