1350 is the limit. Don't want any hotter than that! Either let off the throttle, use a lower smarty program, or get more air into that thing somehow! Alluminum melts at 1400 degrees.

when im haul'n my trailer ill be cruzin at 1300 but its all at your own risk.. Upinsmoke had a good tip, get some more air to that girl.. stocker (turbo) wont like that for very long!!

I must agree with you tho.. gettin a pyro and watchin it climb is a rude awakening sometimes lol

i agree with everyone, your runnin way too much fuel and not enough air... either a new bigger turbo or cut back on the smarty, which may be hard to do...

THATS HOTTTTT!!! Try fabbing up a torque tube for that air intake, and maybe an intake manifold. A water injection kit will lower your EGT's too...would anyone agree?? What about a new exhaust manifold too?

your trying to push too much hot air threw the stock turbo.

1- get a new turbo $$$
2- add H2O injection $
3- a diff IC may help but ill bet not much.

i think the main prob is you pushing hot air into the engine

Turbo(s) or cam would help the most, also an intake manifold, exhaust manifold, and/or a new intercooler would do the trick

could the probe (sender) be bad that is plugged into the exhaust? That just seems very high, even for a stock turbo with intake and exhaust.

Water meth would help the cause too but long term you NEED a bigger turbo if you plan on leaving the smarty cranked up that high....
