That sounds about right for the stock turbo and no chip or boost fooler

Looking for 05-07 front end with Harley Lights

could someone explain what a boost foer does, beacuse i've read the descriptions of what they are, but I just can't see why they are that important? Make more boost?

Typical cummins owner.

boost foolers - from what i understand- trick ur CPU into believing that there is a lower/safer amount of boost. Thus, it keeps you from throwing boost codes and lets u make more boost. drawbacks....if you dont have a mechanical gauge you wont know how much your making, and you can possibly overboost and do damage to your turbo. feel free to correct me if im wrong...but im pretty sure i hit the nail on the head

ok for you SD guys.the obs truck don't defuel like your trucks do when they see to much boost.they will set a light with a over boost code that is it.they don't fall on their face.these OBS trucks are not as smart as your SD.
a boost fooler on a obs truck is a pop-off valve or a air regulator that you put in the map line so the map don't tell the pcm you making more than 25 lb of boost. so yes what rathman is see is normal.
