Bullydog Blues

Either I have the pyro in the wrong place or this bullydog chip makes stuff hot!

I drilled and tapped the pyro about an inch or so from where the manifold bolts to the turbo pipe. Ill try to get a picture later. Normal driving 55 Im running 580-620 and around 60-65 its around 700. At about half throttle with the chip turned up I can hit 1300 degrees easy. Is this in the "off the shelf tuning" or is this normal. I haven't floored it on extreme cause I dont want it to get hot. I can be running 550* on the pyro and just by switching the chip settings can heat the egts up 100 degrees.

This about right? Or No?
