I've seen +48psi boost pressures with smaller tunes and no issues. I'd be more concerned with cylinder pressure read from the drive pressure parameter than the boost going into the motor. What I think happens, is the injection timing is enhanced to provide more power which increases the cylinder pressure as it fires pre-TDC and will therefore add to the potential of lifting your heads.

Just my observation.

How much drive pressure should I allow when tuning the wastegate?

As close to 1:1 with your boost #'s

If I can get it close to 1:1 with my boost will I be gaining or loosing power I understand that by running less backpressure you gain power but if the motor is getting less air wouldn't it run smokier with less power? Someone with more knowledge fill me in please

If you are tuning it in properly your boost numbers wont go down, just your DP. To properly tune it you will need a flow chart for your turbo to see where it is most efficient in the map. More psi's on the boost side dont necessarily mean more power. You could be overspinning your turbo and just pushing hot air. If you find a turbo map pm me and I will help you to find out the correct #'s

The guy with the 450 that competed in the Diesel Power Challenge last year was running stock head bolts, 310 tune, spray, with the Elite EGR delete w/wastegate. I am pretty sure he never blew his head gaskets, but I could be wrong.
