Well... Easiest way is to let off the throttle! Next is to pick a lower gear to
get more RPM. I can get to 1300 easy also, I just let off before it gets
that hot.

That is why you have gauges, to know when to let off.

First, get rid of that K&N, they let way too much dirt in and you can dust (ruin)
your turbo and engine.

Lower EGT needs more air, if you cant let off the throttle, then you need a
larger turbo.
