Factory boost gauge not reading right psi

Hello I'm new to the forum but y'all have helped me out. My name is Michael im in the Marine corps and I have a 05' F350 Fx4 dually and my problem is the factory boost gauge isn't reading over 4-5 psi. Is this a gauge problem or a turbo problem the truck runs great and the turbo spools up like a charm. And this truck is my everyday driver please help.

Most factory boost gauges are reliable and accurate... If your truck has stock tuning. Do you have a monitor of some sorts?

No monitors just stock tuning...but everything I have read the normal boost for the 6.0 is 15+ is this true?

Stock tuning should see numbers way over that... It's been a few years but I'm pretty sure the stock 6.0 should hit around 26-30 psi. If your turbo can't not hit anywhere close to that I'd say you turbo vanes are sticking. I'd get a monitor quickly, you never know if your oil cooler is clogging with one! When my oil cooler went out my oil temps hit 250-260 and the check engine light never came on. You are driving the truck BLIND! You will have no idea the egr cooler or oil cooler goes out until the head gaskets blow or your engine pumps all the oil into the cooling system.

I'm waiting on my new oil cooler to come in I already have the EGR delete kit but how would I go about cleaning the veins in my turbo if that was the problem?

No worries man! If money is tight, get a dashboss (if you have an iPhone or iPad) it's only $170.00. If you don't have an iPhone or IPad get the AutoEnginuity... It sells for $225. I prefer the Edge CTS but that's because its all I've ever had

Got my Scan GaugeII from bullet proof diesel already programmed for the 6.0 for $170. Money well spent.. Plug in and that's it...
