Exhaust Temps

Recommended Posts

When you are pulling a heavy load on a straight road, what are you normally running for exhaust temps. :shrug:When pulling my 5th, I am seeing 1000-1100 anytime the truck is working uphill and about 800-900 when on a steady grade. Is this normal??

Thats not to bad. I see 800 at 70 on level road on a cool day. Maybe you should think about a water/meth kit? I didnt see injectors in your sig are they factory?

Pulling my 15,000 lbs RV 5er, I see 750-800 flat Texas roads at 65-70 mph1000 up hill in 5th, 2,100 rpm1,100 - 1,200* up hill in 6th *(down shift time), or accelerating uphill in 5th Avg. I'd say 800-900* at 10-15 lbs boost

Pulling my 30ft 5er, i see 800 flat, and 1000 on grades up toward colfax so about 4000ft ele. steady steep grade, but i never tow at 70 because trailer tires are not rated for those speeds, my max is 65mph.

About the same for me. 800ish on the flat and 1100is up a 12% grade with the 5er and the A/C going. My GVWR is 15750, just shy of my max. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

About normal... With my mods I see slightly lower temperatures. 700-900*F on flat ground and pulling 7% grade I'm about the same with 1000-1200*F. Once I hit 1,200* I will gear down and hold my RPM's at 2K in the next lower gear and re-check the EGT's
