Whers is your EGT probe placed?

Or, contact Eric to make sure all his settings transferred properly.

1600 is pretty warm, you'd have a hard time hitting those EGT's on stock injectors. A set of 190cc injectors and you may hit those temps on a stock turbo. My guess is the gauge is off. Either way, I can definitely pull some fuel. Email me and I'll tone it down a bit. Thanks!

It sounds like you may have your probe directly in one of the exhaust ports. I would check with another gauge before you condemn the tune. With Eric's Xtreme Street I have a hard time seeing much over 1200 degrees.

i would rather not tune it down i love the power. for some reason the street ran hotter than the race. would you trust the edge gauge or a cheaper analog gauge. if it will work i'll hook the edge back up and run it on the stock setting

That can't be correct or you'd be losing power. At over a constant 1550 you'd be melting the corners off or your factory
turbo fins!!!!!!
