Lower Egt's?

I need to know what all I can to to get my egt's down the lowest? My truck is a single cab 4x4 dually with 35" tires and not for sure what the truck weighs stock, I've got about an extra 3500#s with the welding machine and welding bed. When I tow my egt's go crazy sometimes what will get them down? I know the exhaust helps but probably not enough I want them as low as I can get which I know I'm only gonna get 'em so low but what do I need to do get a new intercooler or get away from the stock turbo?

zoodad is a hole in the fiberglass on the header panel...while your running down the road air from outside is going directly into your intake instead of air from under the hood...

intercooler, zoodad, bigger straight thru exhaust, ram air hood, bigger turbo, nos....

ive got a zoodad, intake, 5" straight pipe and my egts still get past 1400 at WOT...

The factory air flow to the filter is very round about. The zoodad will get cooler fresh air to the filter, faster.

What tune are you running? You may have to have something differant written to keep those temps down.

Also, have you done the CCV re-route yet? If not all that oil that getting put into the intercooler isn't going to help either.

Deffinately a new intercooler and ccv mod, I put in the banks intercooler after I did the CCV mod and my temps dropped 125 -150 degrees on average. My CAC pipes were coated in oil, but I didn't find pools of oil in the intercooler, still had a thin coat to it though. Look into new tunes as well.

Well I'm gonna try the zoodad and see if it helps any, who has the best tune for pulling the most weight innovative,elite or spartan? I've currently got DJ's but you can't pull nothing with his?

I'm sorry let me rephrase that with DJ's I can't pull what I'm wanting to pull
