tackling the EGT monster-
Ive been fighting with egt's since Ive had my truck. Put it this way, I can very easily get the Edge to start beeping on the average on ramp, empty not towing.
I have a atlas 40 and that did help. The atlas 80 made the truck run great but egt's were terrible.
So here is my options-
1- get rid of the ficm tune all together and go with a sct tune.
2-For around $1100 I can get a complete Banks intercooler kit. I have done alot of reading and have read good and not so good about this set up.
3-Water methanol (around $900) Going this route does interest me but is this kinda like putting a band aid over a gun shot?
So I guess the smatest/cheapest thing might be to get rid of the Atlas 40 tune. And tune the truck with the sct???
I guess Im just askin for your thoughts on this. Am I missing something? Should I be looking a diffrent direction?
