Exhaust gas temperature

Hello Guys!!!
After couple of months I have installed the PPP stage 3, on my Impreza wrx 2002, (including a "supersprint" stainless steel exhaust header), the egt sensor light up, and the cars run at a reduced power.....what kind of problem is that? I brought the cars at the workshop, they have resetted the alarm, but then after couple of km, appear again!!! Maybe in Sicily where I live is too much hot? (temperature was in the 30-35)
Please help

if you are running without the up-pipe cat then the sensor will light the CEL automatically.....................

you need a 'fix' to sort

Thank you for your replay and, yes, I am running a de-cat up prodrive up-pipe......but I have installed it last month of december 2006, and nothing happened.....then this summer in june, the engine anomaly light up, cars run at reduced power, and once I went to the subaru workshop, the ecu reads that the exhaust temperature was too high.....then again I reset the faults, but after few kilometers again......
Prodrive guaranteed me, that the whole system was compatible, and no alarms would be come off, once all installed...I still dont understand....
