Egts on 80 daily driver get close to 1200, 120 race goes to 1300 (ive only pushed it that far once, too scared to do it again)... Boost leak problem or something else?
Mods- 6637 intake

Those are not normal. Unless you are WOT. In 80hp tunes you should be seeing 400-1000 around town if you are using the throttle responsibly.

1300 could potentially be high, it really all depends on how long you are wide open throttle before it gets that hot. I mean, if it jumps up in a couple seconds that is definitely not normal. If it slowly creeps up to that, it's pretty normal.
