Boost levels on tunes

What kind of boost are you guys seeing on sct and spartan tunes? Just seeing what everyone else is achieving with boost levels higher then stock and what is safe and what is not..

Spartan - 45-47 psi with the 275 tune and 40-42 psi with the 210 tune. I see closer to 50 psi now with the 275 tune since I put the Elite 4" downpipe on my truck last week.

I haven't looked at the boost level on the Spartan yet! I didn't realize it was making THAT much boost!

i didnt even really touch boost while making the tunes. I removed a few limiters and gained some lbs though, most guys are pegging the stock gauge. I looked over fords calibration. Two seperate calibrations i see for boost, level 1 and 2. One goes to 42psi the other to 33psi. I assume its dependent on temp, alititude etc or ones for one turbo, the other is for the smaller turbo. Im still experimenting with it, seeing how changes in the table affect it.

I actually spoke with my boss, in regards to your question about dpf delete tuning, and once i get all three of them here we are supposed to sit down and speak about a setting up a racing division for diesel tunes. I guess i finally complained enough to make them rethink that "no dpf delete tunes" statement they seemed to be so avid about. Not really sure how its going to fan out and whatnot but i guess we shall see. I mean i don't see how I can be competitive with everyone else If i can't do those types of tunes. I'm also working on the issue of the AFE intakes causing you guys to get the CEL light on? I tried a few experiments but all they seemed to do was slow down how fast the light came on ha. I got an intake here, going to see if we can flow it and make some changes to a few tables.
