EGT Temperature

exhaust gas temperature... i want to know what temperature you guys see on normal freeway crusing... 55? 70? city? idle?
i tried searching for it, but EGT is too short of a term and when i start putting other terms in there, it doesnt find anything since everyoen refers to EGT....

egt

Here is something I found that may help you a little. As for how your truck is running I am not sure cuz I've never had a 7.3 so I'm not sure about the power. If no one else answers tonight I'm sure someone can get you an answer during the day! You could also pm Marc, strokertech, or alan and they may be able to help ya.

Or this one.
Quad Commander...Pre or Post Turbo EGT Probe

Mine is set up post turbo and I stay around 500 + or - just runnin' around. I have a fairly heavy foot. Highway it might drop down in the low 400's. I have an open exhaust, afe intake but no kind of chip yet.

Mine is mounted in the manifold and I only see 450-550 cruising. Highest I'v ever seen it was a 1000 for about two seconds wile pulling a boat with the bed and boat full of gear merging into 70mph traffic up a grade. Basicly a worst case deal as far as EGTs go.

Thats what I was thinking. Mine is a good bit warmer, but I still have a stock exhaust...for a little while.

Just got my gauges in and working, and with stock exhaust and chipped (60hp) I see a max of 1200 with the hammer down through all of the gears. Cruising at 75mph it stays around 700 degs. 45-55mph its around 500 degs. 300 degs. at idle. My probe is pre turbo.

The 5" exhaust just got here, so I will see if it helps. DP Tuner on the way, so I better get to work.

I thought it seemed low too. I watched it more closly today on my way to work. Its more like 500-600 at 55-60mph. Stock intake and stock exhaust minus the muffler. At that is with the 6Gun on level 6. Maybe the 6.0's just run hotter EGT's.
