6.0 egt question

I'm new to the diesel world and had some questions on what is normal on egts for the 6.0. I have on 03 6.0 4" turbo back exhaust with the bully dog power pup and outlook (still have the stock intake). I had a question on what egt's a stock 6.0 runs. With the stock program, I can punch the throttle from a stop and by the time I have hit 50-60 mph egt's will be in the 1250's and can go over that if I stay in the throttle longer. (this is when I am not pulling anything). If I change the program on the power pup to a tow tune egt's spike just as fast and when pulling a 7k trailer on level freeway I will be in the 1100 range running anything over 60. Put a wind in there and egts can go up very easily. Boost unloaded at wot is around 20-22 psi. When pulling a load up a hill it has spiked up to 26 on downshift. When I fist got the truck a couple of months ago it would pull 27 psi at wot unloaded and egts werer the same as what i am seeing now. The egt's seem a little high to me and I was wondering what others were seeing, or if there were any ideas as to why my egts where running high. Any advice would be appreciated.

My egts on a 175hp tune can hit 1250 by 50mph and can bury to the peg at 1500 if I don't get out of it. Towing I just loaded probably 10k and was towing with my gauges thru the hill country and I would stay between 900-1150 on a heavy tow program... My egts were highest at 60-65 and a lot cooler closer to 900 when I kept the engine between 2k-2200 rpms 70-78mph. It also pulled a lot better with out cruise control and lighting the turbo early for the hills.... I still have a stock exaust as well. On the factory ford tuning there was a lot less power and the same egts and the truck worked a lot harder it seemed

This is good to hear, I have had the same question but just never got around to asking. This is about the same as I am running in my truck, it makes me feel a lot better to hear that these temps are normal for others also.

I feel better now !!!!!
