Installed WW2 and need feedback

So finally had the wicked wheel 2 installed and took turbo out and put all new o-rings. No play in ball bearing. Everything looks good. Put it back together and installed new Riffraff intercooler boots while I'm at it. Well been driving for almost a week. Well I fill up the tank and it been 5 days and I'm almost half tank. I swear I don't drive hard or anything. I drive 50 miles to work and highway speed. What would cause bad fuel mileage? I checked for fuel leak and everything looks dry. Also my egt is really high! Before it was way lower before install ww2. It like 500-1,000 degree more after ww2 installed. Anybody got idea why?

You have either a boost leak (leaking boot, missing the big o'ring on the turbo). Or an up-pipe leak, maybe you didn't get the back of the turbo in correctly on the up-pipes.

Did you get the little exhaust back pressure valve hooked on the turbo. It comes out of the turbo pedestal and hooks on the bottom of the exhaust housing.

Check all these out, if you still have the issue I would call up Clay at Riffraff.

I put a ww2 from riffraff in my 02 and I already had the new boots on before the install... I noticed a little bit higher of EGT but only 200 higher? Compressor surge is gone after install... I'd check the stuff they said tho and maybe just give everything a once over and tighten again

Ok thank you for all the replies. Actually I didn't install thw wheel. I had flexplate went out and got it tow in the doesel shop and also had them install the wheel at the same time and new o-rings. I put new boots on and the boost psi at WOT not a whole lot. I haven't really putting that hard while WOT. I would say 25psi maybe. Anybody got picture how their tubes connect to the turbo to read the boost? My lines for the boost gauge goes to the hose that go to MAP. Didn't know if that's right way?
