Ford uses 4:10 gears. The 4:10's will give you the quickest "off the line" response. They're also much better for getting a heavy load moving.
These trucks are big and heavy. But obviously without being "in" your truck with you, we can only speculate as to how it's running. And there's nothing wrong with being "in tune" with your truck.
So if you're just cruising around, then your boost is 5 psi. And if you jump on the skinny pedal it gets up to 20 psi. Well, judging by your numbers, I don't think you have any boost loss anywhere. (so that's good)
So, that leaves you with the mods I mentioned in my last post. Personally, "I" won't do the FPR mod. Both the FPR and 10K resistor mod are supposed to increase throttle response. If I was in your shoes, and I'm close, minus the chip and gauges, then I would upgrade to a 17* HPOP and do the 10K mod.
Just thought of this. One of the things that they changed between OBS trucks, and SD trucks, is the compressor side of the turbo. You could look into moding to a SD turbo, or get the smaller 1.0 housing for your turbo. The 1.0 turbo housing is smaller, so it spools the turbo a little quicker. Not sure what the total price would come to. Might not be too much.
Hope this helps.
Don't burn your bridges, you might have to cross them again in life.
Don't sugar coat things. It covers up the taste of real life.
