Egt's and boost issue...
Here's another one. My EGT's have been slowly getting higher. I use to see 300 at idle, easily. Now I'm up to almost 400 and it's colder outside now. I'm seeing upwards of 900 when accelerating to only 45-50 mph at no more than 2000 RPM. Also, I've noticed soot on the firewall, behind the turbo and I don't see more than 10-12 pounds of boost when getting into it moderately hard. I see 3 pounds when cruising at 60 MPH. As far as the boost, that's how it's been since I got it, but now I'm thinking it's low for the mods the truck has. Although, the turbo sounds what I think to be normal. Does all this sound to be related or separate issues?
My temp gauge is working and cycles as it should and the heat is working well. I know the truck has the upgraded 203 thermostat. So, I don't think the EGT's are related to a coolant system issue. Whatcha think?

Can't take credit for the current build, bought it like it is, but looking to take it further in the future.
