7-800 at cruising speeds is pretty normal. with 35's if you are still running stock 3.73 gears it will run a little warmer. for the 13-1400 it doesnt take long for these things to get hot.. be sure to keep it under 1250. you can run 13-1400 but only for short bursts.

Also to the org!!

I'm pretty sure thats the right place -- Just know that sometimes people have them mounted in a different place, therefore the numbers are off some... but looks like MrJW got ya fixed up...

if you want to lower them though, think about doing the Zoodad (cut a hole in the rad/intercooler support to allow air directly into the intake), getting a bigger down pipe, and water injection... all will lower EGT's

thanks all, i have done the zoodad, did not cut big hole just a bunch of small holes. If i go with a bigger down pipe then will i need to get bigger muff, or just bigger down pipe and keep 3.5 exhaust? or is that a stuppid ?

Yah, if you were goign to get a bigger DP -- it'd be worth just getting the whole exhaust -- specially when FBD is selling a stainless exhaust 4" turbo back for $345!!!!! (plus shipping of course )
