Pyro temp

2002 E350 7.3 Just put pyro on, runs at 900 pulling the flats, 1200 hard uphill. Does this sound about normal? Or is 1200 too high? thanks

you shouldn't run it at 1200 for more than a couple seconds! Do you have open exhaust or larger exhaust and air intake?

It only hits 1200 for about 2 to 5 seconds, then falls back off to around 1000. All intake and exhaust are stock.

What would be safe for maximum sustained temp in a long uphill pull?

600-700 normal driving on mine (pre-turbo). I've only hit 1100 once climbing a hill in OD.

I have a '99 with a complete Banks aftermarket kit (exhaust, turbo, control modules). I just bought the truck and don't drive it too hard, only once in awhile getting into the throttle, and then only for short periods of time. Usually my pyro is reading about 300F, once in awhile getting to 600F. I'm sure this would change dramatically if I was hauling heavy loads. The truck's too dang fast to get the pyro temp up just by throttling it empty. It'll hit 80 in no time, and the pyro barely creeps over 600 to do that. Maybe I should put a load of sand in the bed to make things fun...
