I don't have a meter, but was wondering just how bad are the egt's on my truck when I am in the extreme setting.

Well mine runs between 1300*-1400* with the hammer down for a while but the highest I have ever seen it get was 1500* and I was chasing a camaro down on the big end but just for a second before I let off.:thumbsup

All day long.

But you do need to get an EGT gauge.

with just the stock turbo you will be hitting 1500 and over....you should not sustain anything over 1200 for any extended period of time on the 5.9 unless you want to start dropping valves

Please.......get a pyro gauge!:thumbsup

It's so much cheaper than a 8k engine!
