only 20psi boost...

just bought an 05 f250 6.0l, and took the turbo out to clean it because i wasn't getting any boost, but ran into so many problems i just bought a used one with 70k miles for $275 shipped. got that one in and i am getting about 20-22 pounds of boost when you floor it, is that normal, or should i be getting more?

Mine is stock and I get around 20-25psi. I'm guessing that it is regulated on the stock trucks to keep from lifting the heads under heavy boost.

Nope, they have detuned the stock trucks so they don't. Easy fix to limit the warrenty issues. Get a sct and custom tunes. It will hit 30+ for ya.

start from dead stop and floor it. Count the gears as it shifts. when it hits 3rd gear, it should pull around 23 psi when stock tuned

glad to hear. Good thing is,you may be able to use your original turbo as a core for another one.
