Anytime you can move more air you will lower egt. You could try goin the t4 route with an s468. The 6 speed makes it a little more difficult because too loose exhaust housin (1.15) and it might not spool and the luggin will make egt high. Too tight (.90) and back pressure and egt will become a problem. With 100% nozzles, a 38r should be about to keep them cool. What's your elevation? Do you have big lift and tires? are you sure you don't have any exhaust or boost leaks. Lots of things i would do before spendin 3-4k on a new turbo set up

Nothin is goin to help in a race tune. Hell I could bury a 2000* egt no problem. Race tunes have a lot of fuel and lots of fuel create lots of heat. Its science.

There's so many variables. If you are luggin around in 6th gear at 30mph then you can expect it to get hot. A tunin tweak could help but if you're out floor boardin it constantly then it's gonna build heat.
