Why not get a ported intake manifold?? Get some live tuning and it's going to run great.

Poor horse. 175/30's get my vote and put an MTW 11 blade billet compressor wheel in it.

Everything you have done so far sounds good. I would have to know about your truck and what you want, how clean you want it? Once you port the heads things change a little as far as what you need to consider. I would have to know how much porting and how much are the heads flowing over stock to help you out. Might have to get other parts to help your combo work good. Without more info it's hard to tell you what injectors to use.

I have a tune from Matt he has turned the injectors down it
Does not smoke bad. It just as soon as I pull anything even a
Empty 14' light trailer and go over a hill my EGTs go up to 16-1800
Just trying to keep the same speed. I have talked to several tuner guys
And they mostly say put it back to stock if I want to keep the
EGTs down or keep my foot out of it. I am getting very frustrated . I was
Planning on getting a ported intake. Then I was told it would not make
The difference I want. I just don't want to have watch my gauge more than the
Road.

The heads have had the exhaust side opened up
The intake side was cleaned up and the swirl pattern was improved
The valves were 3 angle cut that is all I can remember
I did notice a big difference in acceleration
In the mid range.

I can't seem to post a video from my phone
I could have the head work backwards it was a while back
I have talked to guys that have no problems with
EGTs getting to hot and have more power than me
I think I am only at 550 to 575 hp at the most.
