I would be checking to make sure your egr valve isn't carboned up.. could be that egr cooler could be leaking common porblems.

Re: 6.0 running hot

Could also be leaking head gaskets.

Get the engine hot. Park on a downhill slope. Check under the EGR valve for moisture. You can also check for combustion gas in the degas bottle. NAPA sells a kit.

Re: 6.0 running hot

Only mods done are the ones in the Sig. It has 195k miles no exterior leaks though

Witht that kind of milage I would find a way to watch your temperature split for ect, and eot. Do it quickly too before this starts a bad downward spiral.
