my 05 psd hit just over 30#'s stock, now with my sct it only hits 20 on a hot tune. this issue cant totally be explained, but trucks act differently to programmers. i'm glad my truck only hits 20#'s cause its fast and less chance i'll have of breaking something running lower boost.

yeah every truck is different, i was hoping for 35+ with my sct but not even close. its okay though i cant complain about the power at 20. i just imagine if it was hitting 35! i'd be at the dealership negotioating table so fast trying to get headstuded.
