Turn your defuel setting up a little. I have seen my boost at 49psi. I have read that youre safe up to 50 psi without a waste gate.

I could be wrong. I'm not an expert. Next solution if you want to be safe with it is to run on lower tune. thats how it works, bigger tune higher boost and I'm pretty sure boost isn't what kills head gaskets it's back pressure although I believe they are similar. I will run mine like it is and replace gaskets an put studs when I need them. I say fix it when it breaks.

Plenty of people run 45+ psi on stock studs. I have seen many people run 50+ on stock studs. Doesn't mean you have to do it if you don't feel comfortable with it. Main thing is to make sure your truck is up to temp (185* or so) on coolant

Thinking about getting rid of the stock 6.7 turbo?
Check this out... and research before buying
