Well I know that on the Bully Dog tuner I ran, I could almost get it to peg a 1600 degree gauge. Damage starts at about 1350-1400.. No reason to be up that high for more than a few seconds anyway.

I have the B/D Triple dog with Outlook, AFE stage II intake and Magnaflow dual 4" exhaust. I tow my 12K 5er in tow/economy and running through the mountains I have seen 1300F a few times, trans at about 120 and engine coolant at 210. (big long mother hill out of Kelowna BC) I daily drive in performance and have not seen temps over 1150F (best MPG setting for me). No tranny mods yet so I can't run extreme without limping and I'm not even considering Crazy Larry until tranny is done.

IMO, I would not run over 90HP with a stock trans,exhaust or guages unloaded.

Tow at 45-65HP and take it easy unless you have the above mods and chances are you will be fine.

As said before damage starts at around 1350F to the turbo/engine and damage to the trans once you start throwing power to her.:eek:
