2001 7.3 I have cold air intake a 4inch exhaust after market chip and I put a new GTP38R turbo on and I have noticed that my exhaust temps are hotter than they were with the stock turbo . Hills that i use to run up faster with lower exhaust temps are now getting my temps hotter faster and i'm having to back out of throttle sooner . Any help would be great.

So from what I have found is that the 38r does flow more air but you have to keep the rpm up to get the bigger turbo to spool up they tend to run hotter in the lower rpmís tell you get in the higher rpm band. Iím in the process of switching to a turbo that is bigger than stock but smaller than a 38r.

It's not the tuner but it probably does need an upgrade for other reasons. Seems that turbos that claim to move more air also require more rpms...

Yes i do believe the 38R need to spin a little faster to keep the temps down, so upgrade your tuner to maybe a DP Tuner multi and go back a gear and keep some rev's on that 7.3. :smile2
