the exhaust temp sensor is usually mounted post turbo and a safe figure for continuous use is 1150 degrees with 1200 allowed intermittently

so its sounds like you may be fine to me

whats worth doing as a maintenance action though is a bottle of injector cleaner into the tank and also check that the fuel filter is clean and clear as both of these can increase exhaust temperatures
