Hello and welcome to Powerstoke.org.
I hope you meant 1100 degrees and not 11000. I believe 11000 would have pretty much melted everthing under your hood. Now, as for lowering it, preventing future failures... actually 1100 degrees isn't really a horrible number. But there are things you can do to lower that... Have you done any kind of intake mods? A more free flowing intake system will allow the turbo to put cooler air into the engine to start with, and will lower egts, just steer clear of the K&N Filter.. it flows great, but doesn't filter very well. If that doesn't get them to an acceptable level for you, you might consider the water injection.. or a different intercooler. I personally don't see how a different turbo will help.. maybe I am wrong.
