An EGT (exhaust gas temperature) probe is recommended for all applications with performance modifications such as this. EGT is an indication of how hot the combustion process is in the cylinders. EGT is also directly related to the air/fuel ratio. The richer the air/fuel ratio in a diesel, the higher the EGT will be. Most stock applications running the PPE Xcelerator Standard Power Programmer 1110200 stay below level 3 for daily use. (It’s best to invest in some type of gauges to monitor the vehicles parameters.) Towing may lead to higher EGT’s so the level best for towing will be determined by the size of the load. The heavier the load, the lower the level you’ll want to run.
*PPE rates at their horsepower levels at the crank shaft, not the wheels.
