Stock Turbo will I max a 40PSI gauge?

I currently have the gauges from my 7.3 that I want to install in my 6.0 but I know the 30psi gauge isnt going to cut it.

In the eventual future when I go to 190cc injectors and stage 2 water/meth what pressures would I be expecting? I have no plans on ever going bigger on the turbo, and if I do I can suck up buying a 60psi gauge. But will I ever see over 40 psi with a said above 190cc and water/meth?

Kinda need to know ASAP so I can order the parts here tonight.

I would go for the 60 psi gauge so down the road if you change your mind to mod more you have a big enough gauge. On my 6.0 I hit 30 lbs with no chip so Id go for the bigger gauge

I just dont like to have a gauge that I am never going to use 1/2 the scale. If 190cc and water/meth arent going to ever push the stock turbo over 40psi its kinda a waste. If for some reason I win the lottery and buy a turbo for 2-3K then $50 isnt going to mean anything then.

Are you tuned? With my SCT on extreme race I am running 27psi and it tapers out to 20psi when it shifts. (this is all off the Lariat boost gauge in the cluster)

i put an 03 turbo on my truck when my HO went in for an update. I hit 39psi with erics extreme street he made for that setup. i had a 30psi guage on there for awhile and i would peg it out so it made me feel good lol. now i have the 60psi guage and i sold my 30. just put yours up for sale and buy a new one.

i have a 40psi gauge and i hit around 36-37, i wish i went for the 60 just because i want to upgrade to turbo down the road, the meth didnt give me any more boost, i dont have bigger sticks per say but i dont hit 40 on my stock turbo thats for sure

Ok guys thanks that gives me some relative #s to work with. Suprisingly the 60 psi gauge is $1.00 cheaper!!! So thats what I am going to go with.

Really what I was worried about is I put the 60 psi gauge on the truck then I sit there contemplating with myself " man now I wish I could peg this gauge" and end up having a $50 gauge make a $3k decision for me.

ive never even seen a 40 lol. you might as well buy a 60 but you will be fine with a 40 even with an upgraded turbo.
