Egt

Does Ford have safeguards built in to their stock trucks that prevent excessive EGT? I have a modified exhaust, but no chip or special air intake. Also, does having a 4" exhaust cause EGT problems while towing heavy loads at high altitude? I have had a number of folks tell me this, but it just doesn't make sense. I thought excessive EGT's were something you had to really watch once you started running a programmer. Thanks!

No you will need an egt gauge to monitor the gas temps. By going with a 4inch exhaust that will help lower egts by letting the exhaust gases flow better. Honeslty who knows if the temps ever get high enough on a stock truck. I installed my intake and exhaust and gauges before I tuned it, so I don't know. My recommendation is to get yourself some gauges they are a must in my book if you tow even stock. to Powerstroke.org!

The exhaust actually helps lower the EGT's...

1250* is the max sustained egt you want to run!

Is there a limit to EGT on stock trucks or can you still get them too hot?
