gearhead street tune guys, what are you seeing for egts?

I switched out my idp street tune for gearhead street tune (which was an awesome move), but my egts are way higher than idp. 1450-1500 when getting on it hard. Idp never seen over 1000-1050 when getting on it hard.

What are you guys seeing?

My IDP ex street is a pretty good bit lower than the hot street. I know this isn't a direct comparison that you are asking for but I can see 1750+ on the hot street from Gearhead

Thinking about getting rid of the stock 6.7 turbo?
Check this out... and research before buying

I have noticed this too. Gearhead runs hot when you stomp it, but I kinda like how tame it is under 1/2 throttle. IDP seems to come on quicker BUT runs max around 1500 (xstreet). I don't stomp my hot street file much. I don't really run any hot tune very hard, I have a lot of respect for the skinny pedal. I don't know which is safer, but my hot street has great road manners/ shifting. If I see 1500 I'm normally backing out.
