Is my insight boost right?

I have a 08 F-350 with the SCT extreme tune DPF delete, and S&B CAI. When I am on the gas or towing my 18 foot trailer, my Edge insight tops out at a little over 28lbs of boost. Does that sound about right? I do not have any custom tunes loaded. Thanks for your help.

In response to your subject, the insight is accurate. As for if that boost # sounds right, I'd say so for canned tuning.

Thanks for the help. My father in law just blew off one of the boots of the pipe that leads to the turbos on his 2010. (I am sure it has an official name) Made me a little nervouse. Said it was a loud pop. Dealership said it was from the extra boost.

Its called an intercooler boot or charge air cooler boot. Dieselsite sells a set that is designed to hold up to the extra boost, but even a stock truck can blow the boots off. Over time oil builds up on the boots and lets them slip off easier. Here's a link if you're worried about it. http://www.dieselsite.com/index.asp?...ROD&ProdID=793

Guys blow boots off of stock trucks. A tuner isn't needed for that to happen. I too recommend DieselSite boots. I have them on my truck and they are great quality.
