EGT limits?

I have a edge juice with attitude on my 04 6.0 Want to know what you guys set your EGT max set point at, or what is a safe temp. I certainly dont want to hurt anything in my truck, but also dont want to restrict it if I dont have to. Thanks for your help, this site is great!!!

1200 - 1250 is the max sustained temp. you can run w/o damage. Short bursts past that are ok, like drag strip runs, dyno runs, street light racing, etc. But nothing longer than 15 sec. tops.

Yea, Ditto what he said... I was running hard in soft sand up in a remote area 150km off the asphault, pulling about an 8000 lb 4x4 trailer, in hard work..... AND it is summer down here. No need to go over 1250 max... For any lenth of time.. Just my 2 cents, but I am out doing it...

Regards, Ranger..
