Neuspeed TIP and increased EGT

681 Views 6 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Kode
The same day I installed NS TIP, I drove back home from my buddy's place and I have noticed that on a highway (65MPH+) the the EGT was about 150-200F higher than before according to my EGT gauge. I thought that ECU will compensate for leaner Air/fuel mixture, but it doesn't yet. Does anyone with NS TIP experienced the same thing? Someone posted pics of his glowing turbo after he installed NS TIP and 3"DP not long ago, and responses were something like "it runs hotter because it runs more flow". I think it is [email protected]#$%^Sh*T, the key is a leaner mixture and as a consequence higher EGT.

Kode, how do you re-align the throttle body? Do you have that function on your APR chip? I'm a little confused by your statement - you re-aligned the throttle body and it smoothed out when you did that, but it didn't feel good at first? What happened, did it get better as you drove it? Did the ecu re-learn it's optimum settings?

http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif Thanks, silvergolf, I will try that as well. I also have the TBA feature on my APR chip, but they didn't mention when it needed to be done, just to do it on a cold motor.
