Installed wicked wheel now higher egts?

I installed my wicked wheel last week and have been running my truck all week with it. I've noticed my egt's are now running about 100 degrees higher than normal and climb very fast. I can hit 1300 just getting on the freeway. Any thoughts on what the problem might be? I don't have an exhaust leak and the turbo is seated in the y pipe. Debating on taking it back off and installing my stock wheel again so I can pull my camper this next weekend.

There's times at around 3 psi it almost sounds like its rubbing but its very faint and only at that psi and not all the time. It says it is building boost fast and the truck hauls azz just higher egt's then I'm used to seeing.

Maybe that wheel flows more air but spools a tad slower. This will cause it to be slightly rich right as you get on it, and the turbo is playing catchup. Try having your tuner pull a little fuel down low. Once the EGTs start to rise they stay hot. For example when I run one of my tunes meant for my 155s the EGTs are good. When I run one if my tunes from stock injectors my EGTs are high. They both command 100% fuel on top, but the 155 tunes pull some fuel on bottom. But because the EGTs got high right off the bat, they stay about 100 degree higher all the way up to and continue at WOT. That all just based on my experience and observation - food for thought.

I will talk to Matt tomorrow and have him pull fuel down low and see if that helps. Today going 70 down the freeway my boost was 5 psi and my egt's actually were low around 680 which is the lowest Ive seen on my truck on the freeway. But getting on the freeway it hit 1338. So they are everywhere right now.

I haven't noticed that. I'll keep an eye on mine and see if I see the same thing.

Let me know what you find out. Maybe I just watch my egt's too close. I hate it when i start to see 1100 towing up grades lol.

My turbo was all stock when I came up to Alaska with stock programming, stock injectors and I would see 1300* on 10% grade hills. You're probably just paranoid but I would inquire about pulling fuel on the low side anyways.
