WW2 or bigger turbo for 2001 7.3 ?

Right now I have stage 1 injectors, pillar guages, jasper rear,4.56 gears, tony wild man tunes, air dog 2, when I bought the truck it had a different hpop but which one i dont know. The problem im having is trying to keep my egts low. Will WW2 lower egts much ? How much hp will a WW2 or bigger turbo add.

It won't lower them much. Buts it's still a great upgrade.
You don't have a crazy set up or anything. EGT's shouldn't be an issue.
What do you have for intake and exhaust?

PIS 230/80's, Van Turbo with EBPV, BD Billet Wheel
Lots of money spent at RiffRaff
Dual SD fuel pumps, in tank mods, CNC Fab bowl retain kit. SDK Tunes. Isspro.
Still pretty slow, just less slow now.

Short answer, no. Under what conditions and in what tune are you seeing high temps, &how high? As Joel said, exhaust?

I think Its called like a silver line exhaust, i think it's 4 inches. Intake is violant. And it does it when i have the pedal to the floor. One time in the "street" tune i was going about 70 mph, i look over at the guage and it's 1500+ degrees. I'm also trying to figure out why the truck shuts off when coming to a stop but that's on my other post.

sounds like you've got a bigger hpop...do you know what your tunes are? if they're not for bigger hpop/bigger inj's then I'd get that fixed. hows the turbo look (I/E what contidion is it)? Also what kind of boost numbers? If no guage(s) I'd start there. look for boost leaks...

What this nation needs is cleaner thoughts and dirtier fingernails...

My tunes were tuned for everything I have on the truck injectors,hpop, etc. Will a wicked wheel give me better throttle response ?

Your boost is WAY low.
At full throttle you should be making around 30.
