could this be a problem with my intercooler or turbo maybe????
mine has a 03 turbo which I beleive lowers the egts a little bit. Anwa I hot 14-1500 on race with 38's but it always goes down to 1250. You are not letting up are; you are staying at constant full throttle. Ted at innovative says you can run 1500 degrees during the entire 1/4 which is like 80-100 mile per hour and not worry about it. I wouldn't let it get much higher than 1500 degrees though. ITs okay for short burst but not long period of times.
Do you have an aftermarket exhast. Do you have a muffler and cat still. Getting rid of those will help lower your egts some as well
