What is EGT on Duramax?
Exhaust Gas Temperatures (EGTs) give you an insight as to how much stress you are putting your engine under. It is the most accurate way to monitor if your current activity is safe for the engine.
Does LML have EGT sensor?
There is no EGT sensor near the engine like most add.
Where do you fit an EGT probe?
The probe should be installed in the exhaust manifold closest to the exhaust outlet at the head (this is the closest physical location to the exhaust valve).
What causes high EGT?
As we pointed out earlier, high EGTs are the result of too much fuel for the available air. If you see EGTs climbing over 1300º F., the fastest way to reduce the amount of fuel going to the engine is to back off the accelerator pedal. Another possible solution is to downshift if your speed permits it.
What temperature should the Allison 1000 transmission run at?
Normal operating temps will range from 180-200 approx. 100 degrees above ambient air temps. These transmissions will run from 200-230 in the summer months when towing in hilly areas. These temps are normal and will not hurt the transmission.
How hot should a Duramax run?
If you own a 2001-2004 LB7: Duramax your normal operating temperatures will run around 160-180 degrees. These transmissions will warm up when towing or driving in the summer months. 200-225 is very common when the ambient air temp is 80-100 degrees and your transmission is under an increased load.

Is EGT gauge necessary?
If you are playing with fuel/air ratio, fitting a larger turbo or running higher boost, a quality EGT Gauge is a must. Without it, you may find that the engine runs too hot and does damage.
How do you keep your EGT down?
Upgrade the Intercooler and exhaust manifold. That right there will drop more than 200° upgrading the turbo would lower the EGT’s but without more aggressive tuning and some larger injectors will cause turbo lag. Get the ol girl flowing more air and the stock turbo will be happier.
