Help me fix this.

Alright, I know I was pushing her a little hard, but we have 30+ mph winds here in SD today, and I was pulling my Skidsteer (New Holland L785 - ~6000lbs) on an 18' bumper pull at 70mph right into a 30+mph wind.

O.K., so SURGE real bad, scared my wife the first time she though it was gonna blow. Secondly, I was running ~1000* EGT (DS header). And it had to downshift a LOT.

I am running a PHP Hydra in 80/60 tow, Stock turbo, stock trans, stock injectors (~260k miles), FRx, Tymar intake, 3.73 rear end.

I do have a small up pipe leak, but I don't think that is gonna fix all this. Maybe some of the EGT issue. Anyway, will a new billet wheel solve my issues? Give me a LITTLE more power for the shifting issue, lower my egt's, and prevent surge?

Get bellowed up pipes and that will help egt's and gain a little bit of power back because it is a pre-turbo leak. Put new billet wheel in for surge problems. It might lower egt's a bit but wont really help with shifting. Remember you were pulling 10k with a 30 mph headwind and your up pipes have a leak which is a big power killer. I was pretty surprised at the power I got back after I replaced up pipes.

going from the gen1 wicked wheel to riffraff billet wheel dropped my egts 100 degrees or more on a hard run.

plus quicker spool up and absolutely no surge, i could still make the turbo surge with the gen1 wheel

and if your up pipes are leaking it will kill your power.

1000 egts isnt anything to worry about. 1250 is your cut off.

Like everybody else said. Get a ww2 comp wheel to eliminate that surge and supply a bit more air. Done.
1000 on the pyro is no biggie. I pull all day long sitting at 1200.

Thanks guys for the advice. I didn't think that the uppipes would make that much difference. Maybe it was just wishful thinking that I wouldn't have to do them! Gives me a good excuse to let the wife know I need some parts!
