Newbie EGT Question.....

With all this talk about EGT, when the temps climb, what are you supposed to do to get them back under control?

Example, cruising down the highway they start to get to questionable levels (if that ever happens). Do you pull over and idle, coast down the highway or maybe something else? Or am I way out in Left field?

Nope, just let out of the go fast pedal and with less fuel, less EGT's.

or just turn off the overdrive higher rpm equals more exhaust flow and lower egt's luggin your motor raises the egts and if your just cruising and they start rising youve probally got somthing going wrong they shouldnt start rising for no reason

Thanks for the input guys. By the time I get ready for some towing, I will have my exhaust and gauges done so I should be ok.

Yep and a lower HP tune (like a tow tune) helps to ensure you don't overfuel and keeps the EGT's in check, especially up a grade. Some folks can run higher HP tunes and keep out of the go pedal on the hills and do just fine. PS. Be careful running that thing on Extreme setting without an EGT gauge...
