Max Boost for short period?
Alright guys, I have researched up and down and still am a little confused.
Some say 50psi is fine for stock head bolts...
Some say "set your warning for 32-33psi with a max of 40psi"
Well I will tell you that my truck with a Spartan tune will easily hit 30-33psi under normal load and acceleration, get your foot into it a bit (merging traffic, not racing) and it'll hit 42-43psi. If I do a 3/4 throttle run, 50-51psi.
If I'm consistently hitting 45 will I pop a HG?
If I hit 50psi for a couple seconds will I pop a HG?
I know it's all extremely variable because there are temperatures, boost, load, etc to consider but just say, unloaded, flat ground to a slight grade...
Here's what I'm running:
2008 CCSB, 4x4, AFE CAI, 4in AFE DP, 5in AFE DP back exhaust, Spartan Tuner 275hp tune, RCD full EGR delete w/CAC tube.
