WW lower boost, higher egt's..

I just installed mine tonight, i figured it would lower boost a little which would increase egts slightly. I didn't expect to go from 32lbs to 25~27lbs. and +200egt's... anyone else have the same results? I only did a quick test run, and maybe i didn't tighten a boot enough or something. just curious what everyone else's experience were..

You have a boost leak somewhere. I lost like 2 psi when I did mine and EGTs were no different.
