Cool Exaust temp opinions, also want new turbo

I'm sure this question has been adressed before but here goes. Looking for opinions on what a 12v can sustain and for what time duration while towing a 12,000 lb trailer. I have seen posts that state 1300-1350 dg is max but what about cruisin with a load ?? concerned about all the nasty things (head gaskets, cracked head etc.) that could happen now that i've started my upgrades.

also lookin to upgrade my turbo and a full 4" exaust. need help and suggestions. If any of you vendors can help me out with suggestions please PM me. I have heard the HX-40 is a good inexpensive way to go thats not too radical. looking for exaust temp reduction.


96 Dodge Ram 2500, ATI intake-exhaust,S300 Turbo, 4" exaust , AFE Stage 2 ,Gsk, Custom Plate (Don't know the number, but the truck is fast) , Full Monte DTT, mag hitec pan and diff cover, Snow's stage III water injection, amsoil dual-bypass, filter engineering coolant filter, Dipricol guages (Pyro,boost,trans temp,differential temp,water temp, oil temp,). Amsoil throughout

1200-1250 MAX sustained.
anything over 1300 you can have but no longer than 15 sec. MAX

exhaust will help a little bit to let her breath better.

twins, rpm, fuel and some small extras.

Turbo, like you mentioned, along with exhaust, should help you out. After this, you have to seek out alternative methods such as water/meth injection for the hills or more efficient intercoolers, but..they're pricey. For reliable EGT's twins are the best option. Not to mention the incredible power they offer. (Depends on where you live...are you towing more than 15% grades?, all day, etc.??) Hope this helps,
