New with a few questions/help

Hello everyone, this is not my first oil burner but it is the first one im playing with. Heres the run down. Jan 99 build date 7.3, mods to truck are 18 inches of lift 46" M/T baja claws, 4:88 gears, 4" turbo back, AFE intake, preditor 3 stage chip 125 max hp. I always run on the 125 setting. At times my egt's are getting into the 1200 degree range, mostly when im getting on the interstate. I want to bring my egts down and add a little more power. I was thinking about turbo wheels or ported housings, not sure what to do next. Please help!!! THANKS

ditch the preditor and get a custom burned chip like... dp-tuner. Or, many people also reccomend the Tony Wildman chip or the chip from elite diesel. The redline for you EGTs is about 1250......I went from a superchip to a dp-tuner and I couldn't believe the difference it made....:Thumbup:

if you are looking to lower egts go with a custom chip, and you could also go with a bigger intercooler or water/meth

{95 F250 Powerstroke XLT} 5 spd, Wildman 6 pos. chip, custom IC, ADs, AFE stage 2 intake, 3" down pipe to custom 5in stack. EBPV break, shimed FPR, idm mod by mattymx, CCV mod, Leveling Kit, diprocol egt and boost guages.
