How much boost is too much boost for stock 6.4 w/the goodies???
I've de-fueled my Mini Maxx at 39 psi. It might be a little low but I don't tend to romp on it hard enough to exceed that in the short bursts I need the extra horsepower. However, after reading plenty of posts on wastegates and the fact that the stock wastegate dumps into the EGR system, how much boost will this engine handle before there is too much? Since the EGR is now disabled, I wonder if even running 39 psi is bad, even as stock I think I never really got over 35-37 psi.
What do I mean by too much? Well for one, head gasket issues. Also, the stock CAC boots, and general wear and tear.
