i didnt see you say you were running gauges...

i would also install an intercooler to help keep those EGT's down...

IC definitely. What HPOP do you have? Stock 15*? 17* Adrenaline? If you're running one of the first two, I'd probably upgrade to the Adrenaline.

Have you upgraded your turbo? The H2E and D66 are, from what I've gathered, very sound investments.
