Around 1400. Not even in the pedal all the way. I do oilfield work and pull a trailer all over. Havent had a chance to see where they will hit when im hooked up yet. Regaurdless im just wanting info on what aftermarket equipment will help lower the egts. Plain and simple

The cheapest and best solution is a cooling mist kit and just use water, no meth.

Your hitting 1400* on a regular basis?

As said above, you have boost and or drive pressure leaks, a brake draging or something...

I have no EGT issues with my current set up, 8800#, 230/100's... Even with my old 250/200's I never had EGT issues, would get a touch hot when pulling in the mountians, but a little RPM management would fix that...

Fix your issues, then worry about aftermarket stuff.

As stated water mist or a bigger better turbo, IC won't help much but will help a little. ..or have your tuner defuel it as some do so you don't have egt issues. Big fuel and good tunes will make heat period no getting away from it.
