Well hello old friends and new members... It's been so long since I've been on. It seems the forum is doing well and has grown a lot... Good to see.
So, I return back to my favorite forum because I have a problem and everyone on here helped me so much with my motor build up in the past. I recently got into camping and bought a 5th wheel, 28 footer, about 9,000 lbs dry weight. On top of that, I've been pulling a 16' trailer as well about 4-5times now, once behind the trailer loaded with 4 ATV's. My problem...
My EGT's are SOO high!!! I can barely keep them under 1200. It seems like the only time i can pull right and keep my EGT's at decent temps is when I'm about 2,000 RPM's, which I thought that was normal.. Until I went camping with my friend who has a 7.3 Excursion, (exhaust, intake, edge with attitude, and a 38r).. we had walky-talky's in the cars and he was running around 800-900 EGT's, barely blowing smoke, while I was trying to keep mine from blowing up (1300-1500 EGT's!!!!!)
Even running down the road cruising unloaded it tends to run hot, 1000, 1100 easy. My motor build is in my sig.. So let me know what you guys thing as far as a different turbo or a way to cool my temps down... I'm looking for something for good street, tow performance.
Thanks for the input!!
