High EGT temps??

I was reading through the Tech forums and found a writup on what to look for when buying used PSD. The reply by NCHornet said that if it's been chipped and didn't have a pyrometer then the previous owner didn't have any idea how high the EGTs were getting.

Could someone please exlain this concept to me??

Thanks you much..

He's correct, if the previous owner ran a tuner/chip and did not moniter the egts he could potientally hit 1500-1700 degrees without knowing it and that can cause major damage to the turbo if done regularly or for an extended peroid.

well welcome to the site......
if the previous owner put all that stuff in he definatly stepped on the pedal a few times. but because he put that stuff in he probably knew to keep the exhaust temps (EGT's) below 1350. one you get above those then you risk melting internal engine components and causeing serious damage. more information on potential problems can be found by just browsing through this site. again welcome.....

Glad somebody is reading my older posts, lol!!!! Remember this as well, just because they had gauges doesn't mean they knew to keep the EGT's below a certain point. Most do but I would no way say that everyone knows. I myself wouldn't buy a modded truck unless I personally knew the owner, just to much of a gamble for me to take, or afford!!!
To the other member, any diesel engine can have high EGT problems!!

Just be careful and let off the go pedal when temps start getting around 1350+ and you should be fine.
