Just had a question for you guys that have been around diesel little bit longer than I have......I can't compare what the EGT's were last year cuz the truck was down for so long and I didn't have a pryo......but lately I've noticed the truck runs about 100-150F (950-1050) hotter at WOT and up steep grades at WOT the EGT's can get to 1300........never got close to that before, just wondering if its the summer heat, it's over 100F daily here or could I have a problem :dunno:

I have noticed the same thing. My truck now running at 500* at Idel. And I don't have an intercooler.

Trans is up too. but only by about 30*

I see a small difference compared to mid-day to night time. But there is a difference with the seasons. Not sure the actually numbers though.

I believe it is due to outside temps. I noticed last year too.
