overheating on hard pulls

I have a 2005 F250PSD. When pulling big hills my pyro runs up to 1100 and my boost at 30psi. Will I hear my clutch fan come on? My truck is overheating. Wlhat can you all give me on suggested problems. On slight hills the boost sometime works but the pyro still climbs up to 1100.

I wouldnt consider 1100 overheating. If you were pushing 1300 or higher then maybe if you dont have any mods.

just cause the fan clutch is coming on doesnt mean the truck is overheating. What does the engine temp do when the fan kicks on. The fan works just like a thermostat. Once the air temp reaches a certain degree the fan kicks in to pull more air.

Sorry read that wrong the first time. You can run 1250 degress on your pyro.

it sounds like your fan is doing what it is supposed to do. Your pyro temps do not affect when your fan clutch engages, only your engine temps will affect that.

When these trks. are doing this it is imperitive to have a tester attached to watch the ect & eot temp pids to see if they are w/in the same degree of one another. Is there any coolant coming out the degas bottle. A pressure gauge is also handy hooked up to the small hose from the intake to watch the pressures not get above 18 psi. Like they said the fan is doing what its suppost to.
