Fat Intake in Carb Cycling Codex

I am planning to bulk up a bit this summer. I am planning on carb cycling following the Carb Cycling Codex. Following its calculations I should consume the following:
High(er carb day)- 216g protein, 270 grams carbs, 170 grams fat
Moderate days- 216g protein, 216 grams carbs, 170g fat
Low(er) carb days- 216g protein, 162g carbs, 170g fat

Is 170grams of fat everyday excessive or should I just stick to it?

Age: 22
Height: 5’10"
Weight: 144
BMR: 2720

I have to think you miscalculated something. The numbers you posted are a fat dominate diet.
