My rule to myself was anything less than 1200. Yes, they "can" go over 1250, but it's not going to be good for it, I dont care what garrett says, garrett wont be warrentying your pistons when you crack them due to high egt's. Higher rpm's means cooler temps.

Slow down, drop a gear and take your time. Went to flag this weekend and egt's topped out at 800 max with all the hills.

Ehh kinda, I was hauling a motor and 2 30 gallon propane tanks up there so maybe 600 lbs in the bed. mph was 75 on cruise the whole way in 5th gear. I hardly ever use 6th. Try towing on stock setting, you will see a difference :D
