Really hot engine!! Coolant temp good!!

I seem to have an issue.. My engine is really hot. It doesn't overheat or anything. I went for a 20 min drive with it and came back I popped the hood and and I noticed a lot of heat. If I touch the turbo you will burn your hand. Same underneath I just touched the oil pan got a nice burn from it. Oil filter is pretty hot as well. Running 15w40. Anyone know if this is normal ? Driving for half an hour you should be able to touch the turbo and be relativity cool no? Same with the oil pan? Does everyone's 7.3 do this? Does the oil always get this hot in 7.3?

Get some gauges. At cruise, your EGT is well over 400*, that goes right into your turbo. Engine oil will be in the 180* area. I can't tell you if what you're experiencing is normal or not, as you have no numbers. If it's not over heating, I'd say it's running right.

It a little odd to me that a turbo would get that hot after 20 min drive ? I didn't even kick the turbo in. I couldn't imagine what it be like towing and driving it for 4 hours

Whether you're creating a lot of boost or not, the turbo is spinning. The spinning generates little heat though, because of the constant oil flow over the bearings. However, exhaust gasses are always going through it. That transfers a lot of heat.

The turbo will get hot to the touch at idle.

I just had the engine out if it to change the oilpan. I changed the pan and I figured I go underneath to see if any leaks and the oil pan left a nice burn on my hand. Well I guess I shouldn't worry Bout it?

The factory gauge is a pile of chit, The factory gauge stays in the same spot from 165~ degrees to over 225f. Get a real temp gauge in there and let your mind ease
