If you were measuring both with the same gauge, at the same location, and under 
the same circumstances, then the old one must have been hotter, at least at 
that location. It's conceivable that there's something about the airflow around 
your new one that has changed the temp up at the pump, but that seems like a 
long shot. You don't have an "over the top" exhaust now do you? Do those 
actually go over the top of the intake bellows?
