You're perfectly fine up to 1350 pre turbo. Don't worry 800 is normal at 70 mph! :thumbsup

is there anything besides water/meth that would help lower temps?

Ya those drugs will help a good bit like 200-300 degrees cooler i think

Either flow more air, or less fuel, or both. But I wouldn't worry, your EGT's are fine man!

35/40 will be better than stock, but an s300 like a superB or HTBG would be ideal... unless you plan on upgrading your HP another then I would go with a 62mm

Ha I got you all beat! I see 1000 at 65 mph dosn't climb much higher that faster I drive but little hills will make me climb over 1150 very easy, custom water meth setup is in the making!

What are you seeing for boost?? Your fine anyting under 1200 is fine, I got slighty bigger injectors than you do and if I lug the motor the EGTs climb pretty quick. between 650-800F is normal and it will vary depending on head winds and hill (engine load) I can go one direction and see 900 fighting a head wind turn around and with the wind at my back see 500F. a pyro gauge cant be used to see a certain temp at a certain veh speed, it will NEVER be the same at the same speed. its more of a reference, kinda like a water temp gauge, it can run anywhere in the range juts not exceed a pre-set temp depending where your pryo probe is located (pre or post turbo). the Pyro gauge is more useful to you at WOT, to determine if you need a larger turbo or not

If you run out to get another turbo because your seein 700 at 70mph your wasting your money
