How far from the turbo is the probe? When the probe is post turbo try to keep it under 900*

The probe is on the downpipe right after the turbo.

Keep it under 900 deg and you will be fine, if it drifts over for a short period thats fine but dont run sustained temps over 900. Anything over 900 is actually 1250-1300 deg of actual exhaust temp, the turbo cools the temp down roughly 400 deg

One thing to remember about a budget build, that is the price IF your injectors dont need parts. I would think the 2's would be smokey but I have read not to put stage 2's in with a stock auto trans, it wont handle it. On the other hand if you have a manual your good. You would also need a reburn on your chip for the 2's and if your are rough on it the stock turbo wont take the stage 2s
