Turbos

I was wondering what people are getting for boost on their turbos. my tuner was reads out 60's psi boosting when i am accelerating and i was wondering what the turbo is actually boosting. i havent put a set of gauges on it yet but i plan to and i just wanted to see what people with gauges say they are boosting to. oh and i have the stock garret turbo on it.

Before intercooler install with stock injectors about 28, after intercooler install stock injectors about 24, with stage one's and intercooler about 34 and these are all with a generic gold superchip. With a custom burned chip it should be slightly higher.

thats what i was thinking. for those that have installed intercoolers on their trucks. did you buy a kit or piece it together yourself? how much did the intercoolers help out? is it worth putting one in?

I am wondering about mine, stage ones, intercooled, 1.0 exhaust housing, Wildman tunes, and I am only hitting 25 psi max, very little smoke and only on the street setting, egts seem high too.
still need to get my 17* hpop in and move the map line to the hot side but it still seems low.
I have checked for exhaust leaks pre turbo and can't find any soot on the firewall.
