These high EGT's worry me
Truck is a 08. Studded and deleted with a 5" exhaust, XRT Pro. I'll add that to my sig. Anyways I've never had this truck at the track and am going at the end of June here in Albuquerque. I just down loaded the H$S HD tunes and set it at Performance. I think this is the 300 tune. Anyways a good friend of mine has a 2010 vette stock. He wanted to see how fast my truck was after the recent upgrades I had done. We hit a side road with no one on it. Took off at around 10 mph and I jumped first. This put me about a full truck ahead. I let off around 95 because of my EGT temps 1700. He was slowly pulling even with me, and about to pass. I was happy with the outcome and knew he would pull me up high. Now i'm afraid to make a full pass at the track. I've done a lot of research on this and my EGT's seem to be inline with others but it still worries me. I'm going to upgrade the intercooler and pipes and was thinking of putting a water/meth kit on the truck just to lower the EGT's. What are your thoughts?
