EGT's with EVO 2

Wondered what kind of EGT numbers you guys are seeing with the EVO 2. With mine on level 2 and the truck with no load I will hit 1300 pretty quick. I have a magnaflow 4" exhaust, and DIY intake. Any input is appreciated, Thanks.

ouch! I don't have an evo, and I'm not sure if you're in a 7.3 or 6.0L, but even with my race tunes loaded up I've got to be in the throttle pretty good to get to 1300*. I run an SCT flash programmer. On a good hard run 1/4 mile I may hit 1450* but that's only for a couple of seconds.

my buddy has the edge evo 2 and his egts are through the roof as well i dont know whats going on with that cause i never see 1000 and i live in az i have the dp tuner. but my buddies are always hot even idling he is at like 560 and when im idling im only at 375 degrees i think its the edge i dont know. his and my truck are both 7.3l but 1300 is really hot and he called edge and told them that and they say 1350 was not that bad i was like wtf are they crazy 1350 your cooking you truck. maybe you could try getting rid of your muffler and straight pipe it maybe that will help. hope this helps you man.

Sorry, it is a 7.3. I thought it seem to get hot awful quick but was not for sure. I guess now I need to figure if it is worth keeping this programmer or switching to something else. BTW, when I say it gets hot fast I mean by the top end of second gear or just after shifting into third. Thanks for the input.

you can back it down but it does defuel at 1300 degrees. 1300 is not a problem unless it is there for a long period.

mine has done it on a few occasions
