I was just wondering if high Egt's limit the power output? I was doing 75 on the freeway and my EGT gauge was showing between 1000 and 1100 and seemed like there was hardly any power,this has done this several times but now seeing what my exhaust temp is,wonder if this has anything to do with it. When Egt's are low it's fine. Thanks...

Ok! Thanks. When my temps are about 400 I can easily spin the tires and do a fish tail from a stop while making a turn. The tires like to chirp when changing gears while EGT's are low.

well it seems like you have more power at slow speeds because of the gear ratios. The same amount of power at 75 feels like alot less.

Your tires could be one reason, but also it looks like you still have the dpf on.
If it happens to go into regen then the engine will hold back.
When mine was still on and I was clippin along the highway and punched it it was pretty much dead around 1050-1100 when it was going thru a regen.

Also have you recalibrated your speedo to match your tires ?
