96 7.3 high egt. Help!

I have a stock 96 7.3. It has downpipe, ts 6 pos chip, afe intake. Pretty much the basic. It has pillar pods with a egt probe under the 8th cylinder. Awhilw ago the egts were fine but now they get hot. Cruising at 50 they are usually around 900-1000. They sometimes get up to 1400 when i hit the throttle. I'm looking into rosewood stage 1s so i want to bring my egts down before i get injectors because i know with the injectors the egts will get hotter.

That's really weird. I don't know what would be causing that drastic of a change. 14 is not good

If it wasn't always that way then something changed. Check your up pipes for soot and check your boots at the turbo Y for cracks.

look for boost leaks, check the impeller wheel for play/dusting

Maybe a shot in the dark, but have you turned your chip up from where you usually have it?

It would never get that hot that fast even on the highest setting. I run mine on performance and smoke all the time. I drive the sea to sky twice a week climbing hill after hill. I could get it to hit 14 if I wanted to but it shouldn't hit 14 at ease
