Sounds like a smokey hot set up! You still running the stock HY turbo? I have an HX on mine and with 300 injectors with a 100 fuel plate it is hard to get EGTs above about 1200*.

It's a hx35 and its not too hot the injectors are really good they actually smoke way less than the stock ones and better mileage but at about 30 psi or so it's gets really ineficient

Your HX is good for up to about 35 PSI. After that they produce lots of heat. What do your EGTs run with what you have?
