6.0L cylinder pressure

Hey guys,

Anyone have an actual value (psi or Mpa) for cylinder pressure in a 6.0L? I would really like to know what CP's are in a stock truck and one that is tuned or highly modified. I have contacted Elite and a few others but I have not gotten any response. If anyone has this info or knows a source for it can you please help me out. Thanks guys!

I really need a CP value for a lab I'm doing. Some of you probably know but I'm a mechanical engineering student and I'm working on a small project for my machine design class. We are studying fasteners right now and I'm doing a lab on 6.0L head bolts. I have made tensile specimens out of 5 new and 5 old head bolts and are going to test them to find the yield strength. Going to do a simplified fatigue analysis to determine how many cycles the bolts can withstand before yielding. I would love to measure the CP in my own truck but making transducers, a LabView VI, and running the test is well beyond the scope of this project. So again if anyone has some info please let me know.
