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

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.

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