thats normal, more fuel equals more power equals higher exhaust temps

Mine would keep on climbing as long as I had my right foot down. I had seen over 1500 a few times.

I put on the Spearco Intercooler and have not had any problems with High/Dangerous EGTs.

1400 thats pretty hot, I dont like getting mine over 1200, water/meth injection should bring those temps down

Send a message via AIM to eazenutz33
lower gears I hit 1400+ degrees now and then if I punch it to the floor......higher speeds and punching it results in 1000-1200

I would like a water/meth kit and intercooler.....but I would also like headstuds, spare set of tires, new motorcycle, spare set of 24" KMC RockStars, new leather interior, and a hot tub in the bed. It's just money right??? hahaha

I was trying to help find a way to lower your EGT's

Some people run an SCT, but don't have those things,...and they wonder what they need to do to lower their EGT's.

Since you already have those mods, the next step to lower EGT's is gonna cost a few bux....like water/meth kits and so on.
