Touched 1500 degree EGTs!!!

Well, I swaped out my old guages (isspro) for a set of AutoMeters on the A-pillar. I ran all new hardware for everything, including a new egt probe in the manifold. With my EVO on level 3 and around 28lbs boost i watched it jump from just over 1200 straight to 1500! I backed out right away and let it cool down. Before I would never see above 1300 in it good and hard but now i wonder how long have I been cooking my poor truck? anyone else have these kinds of egts with the EVO? What all can I do to cool them down? I know water/meth bigger intercooler and more air will help, anything else? Thanks for any input!

I ran my truck without gauges for a very long time. I now regret it. I don't know that it's cause damage, but I've seen egts much higher than I like quicker than I ever imagined. I used to run the thing hard for some fairly extended periods!!!

I ran mine good and hard but had no idea that my temps were that high. Not a clue. I was also suprised to see them jump like that! I wonder if better tuners and chips give better power with lower temps???

I wonder if you could get more air in with a different style intake. Or get a 6.0 IC.

Maybe something is blocking the intake, maybe something kinked in exhaust, maybe better tunes are needed.

Generic tunes can really get wacky quick!

Water injection is the best. If I did it all again, I wouldn't spend the money on an intercooler. Mine did not drop the egt's any noticeable amount. With the water injection, I've barely gotten it to 1300 degrees, where it would've hit 1500 before. Just get a big tank. I can use 5 gallons in 50 miles if I'm loaded heavy, and driving hard. You could also get a 1.0 exh. housing, but then it wouldn't spool as fast.

I will do some checking, intake exhaust restrictions. I just put a brand new fliter on it, but I might rob my buddys AFE and see what that does. If that doesnt help i will be looking for a 6.0 IC and am already in the works of fabbing up my own water meth kit. Any other ideas guys?
