Is there a question in there somewhere?
Rethink and repost with some sense of structure.

Ok, so I think your asking about how to get EGT down and get better fuel mileage while towing. We need more detailed info. Any other modifications done to the truck??

A Signature with these details would help out in any future threads.

I’m very new to this I haven’t really figured out how to do my signature yet but it’s a 05 Dodge Ram 3500 6speed Manual south bend dual disk 255/80/17 tires new long block injectors smarty s06 and edge cts2 with pyro for gauges Im looking to do some upgrades for fuel Economy this truck loves diesel and the truck cruises at around 9/10 psi of boost and I need to do some mods to get that down but I can’t go with to big of a turbo Bc I also haul hay a lot and I need it to spool so what are y’all thinking

OP, Many of us here that are able to help with problems have NOT yet forfeit the use and utility of PUNCTUATION while communicating an idea or a question, or even an answer to a question.

Try it (i.e. using punctuation)... you just might like it.

And even if you don't like it, it will help us give you better answers!!!!

Just my .02

Getting good MPG and towing just don't go together. What's the current EGT that makes you concerned that you need a new turbo? How long does it stay at those temps? Where are you getting your reading from, before or after the turbo? There are plenty of other issues that it could be other than replacing with a different turbo.
What are you currently getting for mileage towing now? I would easily get in the single digits when hauling 15-20,000lbs, especially in the hills but when I was just cruising w/o trailer I could get 20mpg consistently(hand calculated) LOTS of variables with fuel mileage.

My main concern is fuel mileage unloaded I’m getting 15 on the highway going 65 at 1950 rpms around 670 EGTs. my temps are okay I haft to stay in it very hard to get it past 1300. But wen I’m unloaded cruise set at 65 I’m around 9/10 psi of boost on flat ground I need help getting better mileage!!

15 mpg is in the range of what to expect from most trucks here. Very few reach the 20 mpg most claim to get. Takes a lot of $$ and effort.

Signature will deff. help here.

Year, cab, duals or single rear wheel if 3500, modifications, tire size, lift, accessories, 2wd-4wd, and whatever else I forgot.


The mileage is going to depend on all of the factors above and then some.

Check out the Signature of my sold Cummins, it's a good start
