DP tunes

I recently installed a DP F6 with stock, 40 tow, 120 race, 140 aggressive and 1400 high idle. The tuner is working great, but I think I may have been a little too aggressive in my programing selections. I was hitting 1300 at 60-65mph on flat ground if I went WOT from a stop. I just installed a TE modded HPOP and am hitting the same temps by the time I hit 50mph.

So basically everything is working a little too well for my stock turbo and I am looking for suggestions on what tune to order so I don't have to back out so quick. Unfortunately a turbo upgrade is out of the question for the moment.

What condition was your turbo in before the f6? Depending on mileage, you might be needing a new turbo anyway..IMO. Maybe your tune is expecting more boost to match all of that fuel...

How does it run without the tune on? What numbers are you getting with the tuner off?

The turbo has 183k. I am not opposed to a better turbo, but I am currently registered in California so it would have to appear 100% stock.

Not sure what EGTs were stock, the F6 was a upgrade to a predator with a 100hp tune. With that tune, I could occasionally hit a peak of 30psi and only worry about EGTs if I was passing on a mountain.
