EGT's Too Hot!

Well I hit 1443* really quick the other night just messing around town not even at 80 mph. I have a saftey defuel setting on the truck to defuel at 1300 degrees but I still got hot quick. Left it there for absoloutley no more than 3 seconds. Other than a larger exhaust what can I do for gettings these egts cooler without breaking the bank. Would a reburn to some custom tunes help?

Bullydog Flip-Chip
edge ez

SO you are stacking a bullydog and and an edge?
not a good idea.
Get a custom chip or a single good chip. and you should be good.
I have the stock setting (stock,40,60,100,140,high idle)on a TS chip and I have not seen 1300 yet even on the 140hp setting.

Stacking will just cancel the other out on a international.. The edge will probably just raise the ICP beyond what the chip is putting out.

The only way to TRULY lower your egt's is to get a larger turbo or remove fuel. Removing the EBPV in the turbine housing helps, but it isn't a fix. Larger exhaust is NOT the fix as well considering that the STOCK exhaust downpipe flange is larger than the turbine outlet flange. Removing the CAT and muffler will help.

The edge is still plugged into the icp. Truck has no muffler or cat. Truck doesn't seem to move very good with the edge unplugged though. I guess I can unplug the edge ez and unhook the batteries and let the computer reset itself.
