EGT max temps 1250F???

Hi, I have a 2001 ext.cab short box 7.3L with 70k on the odo and when I bought it the original owner already had EGT, boost, and trans temps installed. He also has been running Amsoil Series 3000 Synthetic 5W-30 Heavy-Duty Diesel Oil since it was around a year old. He gave me a 60hp superchip with it also and told me a little about it, he said that with this chip the EGT should never go over 1250F and that’s about the hottest you will want it. So I put the chip in today and ran it hard, I did not look at the pyro right away and my girlfriend did ha. She said it got up to around 1350F, but it was only for under 20-30sec. I called the original owner and he said that the larger tires that are on it now might have caused it because of more load.

Do you think I screwed anything up doing two hard runs with the temps over around 1350 for a short time???? I parked it after and let it cool down to 300F before I shut it down. thanks.

Short bursts of even 1400+ degrees aren't all that serious. It's sustained temps higher than 1250 that present a problem.

I hit 1500+ every day with mine, I would recommend not letting it get above 1350 for more than a minute or two at a time. It is important to make sure that the pyro probe is mounted before the turbo when comparing temps.
