Like said before...it all depends on many things,...launch, weight of the truck, tires, outside temp,..etc etc etc etc

I cruise @ 700-900, and get up to 1500+ on a hard run.

But I have a whole lotta, rolling resistance and mass compared to most people.

Much like Tank 250 said, 1500+ is pretty easy with the bigger tunes. I haven't done a 1/4 run yet, but on hard acceleration up to 70mph I can peg the needle at 1600 on my ultra lites. Thinking I might need a water/meth injection soon. I know for short bursts it wont hurt things too much, but crusing at highway speeds I am between 900-1100.

the head studs are for to high of boost not egt's. 1200 is safe for a longer period of time but 1500+ should be less then 30 seconds IMO.

What are the norm egt's on the economy tune?

It still seems like the truck is extremely powerful even on the economy tune. I am a little reluctant to install an egt guage on my own. I am afraid of getting metal shavings down inside the header. I know I need to but just have not.
