Extreme boost

Alright, so i just went from a street tune on my sct xcal 2 to the performance tune. On the street tune I was pushin about 25lbs of boost on the performance tune I am registering over about 34 is this normal and exactly how much boost can the stock turbo handle? My truck is an early 03.

Goin big or goin home!

34lbs is fine for an 03 turbo. Anything after that and it will choke anyway. 32 is optimal and you may have a little bit of error in your gauge anyway.

You might want to look into a set of ARP's for the heads too, but enjoy the tune! 34 sounds right for the 03 turbo.
