egts to high

Im posting for a buddy, hes got an 04 6.0 with banks intercooler, banks intake elbow, aem intake, fass fuel. His egys were running normal and they recently started going above 1500 degrees, he thought maybe his turbo was going out so we installed a stage 1 powermax and it still reaches over 1500 degrees but now quicker with the new turbo. Can anyone help me out

I had the same Problem guys from this forum pointed me to find what was causing it for me, I also have the powermax. It was an pre-turbo intake leak and exhaust leak from lack of factory exhaust manifold gaskets on my 03 once I installed exhaust manifold gaskets and fix the loose intake clamp all is good, just something to look into

Too much fuel, not enough air... Check for exhaust leaks and CAC boot leaks. my truk did the same thing with a small rip in the boot.
