High Temp At Wot
Problem number 2 when I run WOT 8100-8150 my high temp alarm comes on I let off the throttle back to 7600-or so and it goes away I could run at 7900 and no alarm but when WOT it goes off and just for info I added a B-KIT and 4" air intake before I did not have this happen, any suggestions?

I've had the same problem twice now . Do a compression test , and a leakdown test....more than likely a blown head gasket/and or valves leaking compression. You are probably loosing coolant out of the overflow tube also.

i have not noticed any coolant leaking or the level dropping I will check the compression but how do I do a leakdown test

You'll need the tool, or just have a dealer do it for you.

I don't think it is the head gasket you would be losing fluid.It might be the temp sensor in the water box.You can take it out and put a plung in there and just zip tie it to your exhaust hose.

Like mitch said , try zip tying your sensor to the coolant tank hose, thats where mine was when I had the same problem.

I want to double check everthing, back flush intercooler, make sure my hoses are not in a bind
I will look at the sensor not real sure where I would put it if I move it or are you saying remove it plug the hole and just zip tie to keep it out of the way
