EGT's way to high

i have an SCT custom tuned by eric it works great the only thing is that im hitting 1600 at WOT and i no that normal for a second then it should back down to 1200-1300 well mine isnt it is staying at 1500-1600 from a dead stop to 100MPH holding it at WOT for 1/2 mile or so and it wont come down>

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

Also, what kind of guage are you seeing this with? Maybe a malfunction in the gauge? Needle bent or something?

what kind of boost numbers do you see? Do you have a clogged filter? Maybe look at your gauge and see if the needle or face is bent on it.

you get 35 PSI on extreme race, but you only get 22 on a WOT run?

sounds like you are starving for air at WOT. It should stay in the 30PSI range at WOT
