During regen these trucks get hot. Normal Driving 1150-1200 should be your warning alarm. Above those temps is fine for short bursts but not extended driving. I would keep it below 1600 as your upper benchmark. As for normal driving it should run between 600-800 depending on your speed and the roads.

Thanks that about what I thought. I kind of want to see what egt's do when pulling my 5er this summer in the mountans of Tenn. So far it has stayed inthat range.

sit tight on the trailer pulling.... i had an edge on a dodge i used to own, and would run it on stock pulling a 24' gooseneck loaded with cows (15k or so) in moderate hills running 70-75 and running up hill trying to keep 70 truck would de-fuel.... i set egt's max at 1200.

I pull the passes here in Colorado many times a month. 2 of the passes are on diesel powers toughest passes in the country. Eisenhower, and vail. That being said I can pull the passes with a 11k pound trailer in my 210 tune at 65mph and not have egt's get above 1050. This is in my 210 tow tune. If Im in my 250 tune things will start to get hot. Full list of mods are in my sig.

Really off topic but, what remote start did you go with or did it come with the truck.

I wouldn't worry about 1200 sustained, 1350 is about the end of my comfort zone, I'll back it down at 1400.

My remote start is a clifford. Works like a charm and has a cool down timer that I run in the summer time. I have it set for 45 seconds after I turn the key off.
