Down pipe tuning problems!

I was wondering if anybody else out there has had any issues with exauste temps after installing a 4" down pipe and 3" Cold side intercooler pipe.
Or maybe i just need to upgrade to better tunes.
Any help would be much appriciated.
Thanks

How hot is it getting? it is sustained or just short bursts?

More of an overall increase, I use to run in the mid 600s to low 700s and now that I put those pipes on i run in the mid 700s to low 800s on the interstate. I could never hardly get over a 1000 even when pulling a tailer now when i agressivly accelorate i hit 1200 to 1400 with no trailer. Hope this helps.

That's pretty hot for rolling down the road, in my opinion.

Are you still reading your EGT's from the same spot?

Usually the EGT's go down after installing the 4"downpipe.
