Question 2 Low EGT

Does low EGT cause incomplete burn at cruise? At 35 mph I see 400-450*

That's about what I see at 60 MPH.

I see 350 at idle.

If there is black smoke your exhaust temps are going up too.

There is no black smoke at light throttle. The truck is a 97 with a DP Tuner set on 80 tow.

That means that you truck is running great if you have no black smoke & low EGTs. Under normal driving what temps does it normally get under light throttle acc. up to about 55mph?

Re: 2 Low EGT

My EGT's have lowered due to dense air mods, I added several cold air director ducts to the intake.
