Wicked wheel causing High EGTS's?
Lots of smoke - higher EGT... I installed a wicked wheel (from Riff Raff diesel) along with new up-pipe donuts and seem to have higher EGTs and more smoke than I did before. When I bought the truck 3 years ago it had a K&N drop-in which I replaced with a 6637. The turbo surge increased which prompted me to replace the compressor wheel. The up-pipes had some obvious leaks so they got the fix too. Now... my EGT alarm on my Edge module is driving me nuts. I would expect the temp to be lower but it's not the case. The temp seems to run much higher during acceleration even with no load. I pulled my 20ft boat a few weeks ago and had to creep up some of the hills I would normally be flying up before, just to keep the temp down. I checked all the boots for leaks - none. Any ideas?
One other thing... a few weeks prior, the ICP sensor sprung a leak so I replaced it with the International version. I think this is when the excess smoke began.
Help would be appreciated..
