Cooling EGTs

I got a chip with david lotts tuning. It is great, however, it runs hot as all hell. After a few seconds with my foot in it I have to let off because im hitting my 1250 egt warning light. I want to cool it down some. I know I can spend thousand or so on a turbo. Not in budget. Or spend a few hundred on a 6 leakers intercooler and see my egt drop 10 degrees. Not enough. I thought a lot about maybe water methanol, but that's another up keep thing, and I would imagine it would make my truck less marketable. Any ideas? Maybe turning the wastegate up if anyone has done that? Thanks a lot!

I have the bellowed up pipes and new driver manifold, however passenger is leaking. My EGT probe is in new driver side manifold. I have to pull the engine this fall so ill do it then. As far as boost. up to the AIH (my probe location) Im making boost. I have the right amount of power as if there weren't any major boost leaks too. But I have read many others say he runs hot so I know its not just me. Just trying to cool it down some.

What are your boost numbers. There's something definitely not right because I can lay in it all day and not get past 1200. Also where is your egt sensor located on the manifold?

then that's my "problem" like I said earlier. David lott tunes are hot. I just need some suggestions on cooling it down some without breaking the bank.

For $20 you can build a boost tester. I say if you find no leaks it's worth it.
