Dreams of owning cclb
I have a boost gauge, a egt gauge, and a trans temp gauge. What are pretty common numbers to look for and what numbers are bad?
I disagree on the tranny temp. 185* ain't gonna cause any damage. Personally I doubt you will ever see that kind of temp in the hills of OK though unless you are towing real heavy and slow. I have been over 185* more times than I can count and that was even with my stock tranny. I have even had it go over 250* about a dozen times and my fluid was still clean when I put the BTS in. In no way would I recomend those temps and since the BTS went in I put in a larger cooler but it is still quite easy to push it over 185* towing heavy up mountain roads.EGT - cruising bout 750 over 1200 bad
Trans never over 150 over 185 bad
Boost cruising 2-5psi over 35psi bad
agreedI also would like to say that after talking to a guy on here and FTE who is a Ford Tranny Guru, he told me 220* is the number to look for, never over 250*
Just my .02
