Question Broken Piston?

My cousin has a 02' with 75K and broke a piston! Ford said that he had to much boost at 24 psi. They also said that 18 psi was max for a 7.3. Stock it will push 19 psi all day! The truck only has a after market muffler and a edge evo set on the middle setting. This truck has always been faster/hotter than most others sense it was brand new. So i am wondering if the injectors or turbo could be not stock from the factory? Or for that matter anything else that could cause high boost?

Any thoughts?

First of all dont listen to ford for crap, these things will boost up to almost 40 before you even have to worry about a headgasket.(with forged rods) Well i mean the rods in the 02 are PMR's but honestly it sounds like a freak accident to me, the edge definitely isnt exactllyy a good tuner to be running though..

thats way low in the miles too, crap happens though..

The skirt?

Did the pin rip or the rod bash it, or a ring get messed up in there? The skirt doesn't go for no reason, something else would have to rip it apart. To just throw a new piston in there is IMO a good chance of having it happen again.

It does not make sense to me ether. they took it apart and the only thing wrong was one piston skirt. Ford claims to much boost will do it. I still think it mite have something to do with the injecters or pump.
