As far as I know, around 26 psi is the maximum boost that should be seen on a 6.0L with the most current calibration strategy installed.

On a 2003 model year engine, NO. On 2004 to 2007 model years, YES it is possible, but requires finesse in doing so.

If your EGR valve is still fully functional, it needs to be active commanded CLOSED, you then need to active command your engine RPM up to 1200 RPMs. At that point, you will then need to active command your VGT duty cycle between 0 to 85%, and watch for a response in your MAP (Manifold Absolute Pressure) readings. If you have a 2004 to 2007 engine, you will need to remove all the intake manifold bolts, but not the manifold itself to remove the EGR cooler. Or, you can remove the manifold with the EGR cooler bolted to it as one assembly.

FYI, a delete can be done without completely removing the manifold. You do need to loosen the manifold and with some shimmying and prying the cooler will come free. I installed a RCD kit this weekend as a complete novice, everything worked out great but it took forever and I was well over my head.

If I can do it just about anyone can.
