Do these temps seem normal?

75 MPH. ECT 216-220. EOT 218-220. TFT 188-192. EGT 850-1050. IAT 102-104.
This is unloaded pulling rolling hills of east Texas. Don't know ambient but its freaking hot, prolly somewhere around the IAT. Thanks for any input.

Seems a bit on the high side to me but not extremely so. Running like that here though my trans never gets above 170.

I'd have your fan set to come on earlier if it was me. That can be done in your SCT tunes.

Well the good news is, no major deltas. The temp is well over 100 outside.....hum, seems a TAD high but nothing horrible. Are you missing your lower shroud under the front bumper? I had mine off when I was involved in a 10 car pile up (its ok, my truck was the best out of everyone) and when that was off my temps were a good 10* higher than normal but all were still safe...

Thanks for the input. I think I am going to install a new water pump and a aluminum rad, it has 204K and as far as I know they are original. When I install them I am going to take my intercooler, trans cooler, oil cooler, and condensor out and clean them out real good. I am also considering putting an additional trans cooler under truck right before the fluid goes back into trans.

I installed a 16" electric fan pushing from the front and that didnt really help.

I have a Ranch Hand full bumper and I know that it is limiting air flow, but I didnt think that it would that much.

My temps sit around 206-210ect and 212-216 eot while cruisin flat highway. I noticed this is considerably higher than most forum members, and usually the temps up here in Alberta aren't exactly breaking any thermometers. Could it be coolant to water ratio? Overall coolant level?

I read about LilPooh's water pump and I had the exact same thing happen to me. I put a new fan clutch on and it stabilized the temp's but they are higher now than what they were last year. I'm gonna get me a BPD water pump, hold off on new rad, still clean everything and see if that helps. Thanks a lot.
