Hi all, wanted to pass along my vitals from my first decent towing experience and get your opinions.
2006 F250, stock head bolts, egr & oil cooler stock.
80 degs F
8000 +/- 500 lbs with trailer and gear
34 foot travel trailer
decent up and down grades to pull with limited flat ground.
A/C on, set at 70 deg
Using Matt's 8K tow tune
ECT - 202 to 214 degrees
EOT - 210 to 224 degrees
I averaged an 11-14 degree delta between ECT/EOT and only went over 15 for a few minutes and would come right back down and that only happened after a decent pull up a grade.
My reason for being concerned is I've installed an EDAS(Engine Damage Avoidance System) from POWERSTROKEHELP.COM - The Information Source for Ford Power Stroke Diesel Owners & Mechanics and Home of EDASŪ "Engine Damage Avoidance System" for Powerstroke Diesel Trucks
and it went off when my EOT's hit 224 pulling up a grade. I immediately pulled over and let the truck idle and cool down for about 10 minutes. Do these temps look like I'm having issues? No puking and not low on coolant but worried that I'm towing less than 9000 lbs and want to avoid a complete motor failure if possible.
Thanks in advance.
