higher egts with a wicked wheel

I put in a wicked wheel a few weeks ago and noticed that my egts are a little higher than w/ the stocker, and they get up there a lot faster. It cleared my surge up completely and I only see about 30-32 lbs with the wicked wheel, I saw about 34-35 lbs with the stocker, which I expected. Also, i noticed the wicked wheel dosent clear up the smoke on the top end like the stocker. Anyone else experience this?

I experienced the same thing when i installed mine. boost went from about 32psi to 29ish with the WW. Also EGT's are slightly higher, but it cured my terrible surge so i'm fine with it. I don't know if this is normal or not though.

I could be wrong, but I am pretty sure the wicked wheel does not flow as much air (cfm) as the stocker, thus the reason for curing the surge (stock wheel making more PSI than the engine can consume) and would explain for higher EGTs from less air......I could be in left field, but I figure this may not be far off

The wicked wheel mod gives up boost and flow to cure the surge.
So yes you will see lower boost and higher egt's.
