Towing about 11k, staying around 65 EGTs are between 600 and 850, but as soon as I start a climb it will easily increase to 1100. As soon as I let off, it drops quickly. I've hit 1200 before, I've read about people hitting 1500 on tunes without damage. As long as it doesn't stay there it's ok.

Your temps sound normal. Do you have stock or aftermarket exhaust?

Set your threshold for 1200*, and when I tow its 1100*, the sustained limit is closer to 1250* before you risk melting components. If you should break the 1250-1300* range and climb closer to 1500*, it should only be for very limited amounts of time (I.E. drag race, tractor pull, peaking a climb) and should only be for a few seconds at a time. I advise making that a rutine, and understand at those temps things can, and will, break.

At the moment i have factory exhaust minus my muffler and cat next month with my play money im getting a 4in but for now its 3in down and 3.5in the rest my temps seem to bottom out around 1100 i can run the crap outta it when not towing and not get much higher ive never hit 1200 even when towing like i said my buddy thought the temps were a bit high but he has a 7.3 with a 5in exhaust so to him they may be does the 6.0 run warmer than the 7.3 on avg?
