friggin truck

95 f250, cold air, straight piped, tuner, about it
at this point had the truck 4 years cant do another $5.50 diesel summer, puttin some work into it to sell it, heres the problem, we straight piped it this summer and as soon as we did it started running at the hot side of temp gauge, havent done gauges so dont know what my egts are, I started doing some work to it last week, pedestal orings, fuel filter, cleaned fpr screen, which made truck run a lot better, still wants to run excessively hot, any ideas?

What's excessively hot? If you don't have gauges are you certain its running hot? Maybe its not even related to the exhaust.

A 4" exhaust won't raise water temps. Put a new thermostat in it.
