All last week it got into the high 60s - low 80s, it was great weather, but I'm not sure if this was due to the hotter weather, or if it is something else, but my EGTs were reading about 100-150* warmer than they were when it was in the 50s the week before. It just seems like the exhaust is getting hotter and it takes longer for my truck to cool down when I get home, normally as soon as I park I only have to wait 10 seconds for the exhaust to cool to below 350*, I do that just to be on the safe side, but now I normally have to use my turbo timer and let her run for the 3mins to completely cool down. Is this due at all to the Looney tune on my livewire, I know it does run hotter than other tunes, but its never been like this before. Any ideas please let me know.

The weather's been a bit warmer here too lately and I too notice that my EGT's run just a bit hotter under normal driving. Warmer air taken in, warmer air out.
