Egt temps

I was wondering what was considered hot for egt's..on tow mode cruisin on the highway im at 800 pretty much no matter what my speed is..when i merge i almost hit 900 depending how hard i get in it but sometimes 1000. i was thinking if i was pulling a trailer my egts would be around 1000 at a crusing speed..? but i dont know yet..

But around town messing around on performance i hit 1300 once and put out around 35 psi boost....is that good bad or what? this is all with canned tunes and 4in turbo back otherwise its stock
thanks for any info

I tow about 10k at 1000 degrees at highway speeds. Iam useing the highest setting it didnt change as i changed my setting.Thats before turbo reading.Iam not sure how your is set up and the SCT is a better programer it might be a little hotter.Iam sure there will be some SCT guys chim in here that wil help you more.Good luck

Those temps sound bout normal Generally anything over 1250* for a prolonged period of time is not good. I've hit upwards of 14-1500* on some of the race tunes for short bursts with no probems.

I can hit 1400* towing about 7k up Eisenhower tunnel (steep pass), if I floor it. I can keep going 50-55 mph at about 3/4 throttle and keep my EGT's below 1200*. Da*m I need water injection
