Warhammer tune and ridiculous amount of boost?

I recently did the dpf delete and Spartan tune...I had the warhammer tune on for about 30 min before I decided to change it...I felt my truck was going to come unglued! It shifted ridiculous, sputtered a lot, slipped out of gear and then jumped back into gear, saw full pegged boost reading of 40 and it just didn't feel like that was good at all for the truck. I have since backed it down to the 165 tune and that seems to respond a lot better...oh and boost peaks about 32ish. Ive read through the threads till my eyes are bleeding so I just wanted to make a new post and ask you folks on your thoughts of what boost levels are safe for this truck...especially given all the talk about turbos going out on these things.
I left my truck alone for 3 years so now im starting to play with it...top gun customz lift is on the way...have the sinister egr delete but will probably wait another year or 2 for that though.

Read my first post in my thread detailed Spartan vs h&s comparison it will answer some of your questions. I ran the warhammer for 18 months

A pre "hyper balanced" turbo (yours is a pre) will be toast in no time if you are hitting 30+ psi often.

I'm pretty sure mine is a pre hyper balanced turbo and I've been running the Warhammer tune for about 20,000 problem free miles, but I dont drive the shiz outta my truck.

How often are you seeing 20psi? 25psi? 30psi?

Not very often, my truck is more of a highway cruiser than anything. The odd time I'll see over 20, and everyonce in a while when I'm in the right mood I'll put the peddle down and peg out the boost needle .

I have a Job 1 (pre hyper balanced turdbo) 2011 250. I've been tuned for close to 75000 miles with H&S, and kept it mostly on the hottest setting. I've driven the piss out of my truck and babied my truck and have had zero problems with my turbo. I saw boost spikes up to 35 psi all the time before the last H&S update that de tuned the turbo.

That's not necessarily true. I've got 21k on mine tuned, it's an early 2011 build truck with the older style turbo running full time on HOT on the H&S and see 30-32psi daily.

Most of the turbo failures I've seen on tuned trucks were guys with MCC custom tunes running 36-38psi.

How does one know if the have the "hyper balanced" turbo or not? was there a time frame when they changed them or is that something they replaced upon failure. I have a 2012 Lariat CC
