    Yes, too much protien can turn to fat. The amount you need depends on how much and what type of exersise you do, among other factors. I have heard that 1.5 to 2X times grams of protien for every pound of body weight as a rule of thumb, so you are close to the limits with what you describe.

    are you on a cycle???

    If not then for that mass you should get about 300-350g of protein and about 4200 cal.
    If you're on cycle then 400g of protein and close to 5000cal.
    Those are pretty good estimates.

    if the calories from your protein intake is beyond maintainance level then it will turn into fat.

    I would stick to 1-1.5g of protein per lb of bw when not cycling and 2g + when cycling
