Default Towing EGT's

I bought a Gearbox Toyhauler model 375's 5th wheel. Its 38' long. I loaded it up last weekend and towed from Bakersfield, Ca. to Las Vegas. I hit the Tehachapi grade on Hwy 58 and the Baker Grade on Hwy 15. Both are long 6-7% grades. My trailer weight is around 14,000. I kept EGT's at 1200 or lower but after a while on those big grades and had to shift down to 2nd gear. I have the 80hp tow and 60 hp tow from DP Tuner. I am sending it off to get his 40 hp and 20hp tow tunes added. Would a 1.00 housing make the egt any better? I have bellowed up pipes and the turbo or innercooler does not have leaks. I ended up pulling both of those grades at 40 mph. Truck does decent on flat ground in overdrive but on the big grades I thought it would do better.
