newbie: egt temp questions

2008 f250 only mod is a edge evolution programmer. ran it for a couple of months and engine temp ran around 400 at 70 mph. out of the blue temp jumped up to 600 -700 at 70 mph and goes up around 1000 when I gas it just a little nothing hard say to pass. I thought maybe the egrt a sensor but no luck. same way when done. Does anyone have any suggestions or are my temps. ok thanks

Possibly going into regen mode causing the temps to climb which is normal.

No to steal your thread bud, but be sure to check out the Kansas forum. We are in the process of trying to get a Kansas chapter of the org going and are trying to get any Kansas members to join up.

Ohh. and welcome.

If you are running it DPF on, it could be getting clogged and causing the extra back-pressure.

I wouldn't worry about it until you start hitting 1500 degrees. Should be able to handle 1600 degrees for a few seconds.

I would say 400 is LOW at 70mph, myself...

I agree...

I don't know much about the 6.4's but I would say your fine. With PHP tuning on my truck i would run about 500*@70mph and now with Gearhead tuning my truck runs around 650*@70mph. And i would see upwards of around 1000-1200 when really getting on it.

The norm is 100* for every 10mph your driving.

Truck is for SALE.
Looking for a GT4202 or similar sized BW turbo... PM me if you have one.
