Pat your self on the back, if you are not blowing smoke and are under 1100 at WOT than you actually have your truck tuned right.

Well, max EGT for a 12valve at it's rated output is 1250*... so you're almost there and probably beyond the rated output. You don't want it running at max EGT really, the cooler the better to a point.
What's your fuel pressure at when driving down the highway normal... and at WOT from highway speed?

You guys are missing his point.

With the aneroid removed and plate pulled with a stock turbo the EGTs in his truck should be waaaay higher than what he is seeing and there should be plenty of smoke.

It sounds to me like you have a fuel delivery problem of some sort.

but there stock injectors... maybe if he had aftermarket ones... but i would check the fuel pressure to be on the safe side

Exactly my thoughts, I can run hotter at WOT, with not fully tuned up pump yet, stock injectors/turbo yet too.

just out of curiousity, where is your pyro probe located, before or after the turbo?

What does that have to do with anything? I've seen 1800+ degree temps on stock 180hp injectors and the typical pump mods.

There should be a port on top of the fuel filter housing that you can attach one to on a '97.
