I towed a 7800 LB trailer yesterday and my EGT's on flat land was at around 1050. Is that normal? And going up a pretty steep hill I was at around 1250.
My trans. temp stayed at 168 pretty much the whole trip. I towed at 65mph. Also, my boost on flat land was around 10 and the steep hill got up to 26. Just wanting to make sure these are normal readings since that was my first bigger tow load.

Seems normal. EGT's are a little higher than mine on a similar load but everything else is right on

Mine run about 900-950 in that tune with a similar load. I wouldnt say yours are out of the ordinary though. Different trucks different strategys

I think it says not to tow in extreme street. Atleast thats what I was told. I know it is not a big load but I was told I could tow up to 10K with my street tune.
