When the dealer hooked my 06 6.0 psd up to the computer they found that with my Banks 4" exhaust and tru-flo air filter alone in creased my boost by 5lbs at 20lbs.

Hum, kinda strange. I guess maybe if it is breathing better, it will boost a little higher.

no, when he was testing it where it should have been boosting at 20 it was actually boosting something like 24.8 lbs.

that sounds *** backwards. Usually as you increase flow, you lose boost. All boost psi is, is the backup at the turbo. When you increase your motor's effeciency to move air, it SHOULD decrease the # you see at the gauge....even though it is actually flowing the same amount. That's why alot of guys see a noticeable boost psi decrease when they throw on a more effecient intercooler.
