35 psi boost

my buddy has an 05 common rail cummins completely stock... just hooked up his egt and boost gauge today, and of course we had to test them out so we took it for a little spin... COMPLETELY STOCK and he's putting out 35 psi already... insane. i guess i can say i'm somewhat jealous because my PSD has mod's and i'm maxing out at 25 psi...

I wouldn't sweat it...I put less boost out now with it being tuned.

Every setup is different.

Eric is right.. but have you unplugged your wastegate? you will gain some just by doing that.. I unplugged mine the other week once I got my new clutch in... I was never able to get up to 24psi... but Thursday when I was coming home I laid into it real quick and got up to 25.3 psi.. and then I let out of it.. not for sure yet how high she will go but will find out soon...

More boost doesn't mean he's got more power. I wouldn't worry about it either.

I wouldn't want that much boost, I'd worry too much about the head studs. I love my SCT custom tunes, more power with less boost.

Boost is not that important. My truck actually hits peak power before I hit peak boost level. With all the mods I have, I still only see about 27 psi max. On a side note, a 1.0 housing is great fro our trucks running stock injectors. It will help increase bottom end air flow and give a little higher boost on top end.

yes you will if you do unplug it... I and others think that it does spool up just a little quicker also
