How much boost?

Hey guy's, just bought a new edge evolution II programmer and was watching how much boost my truck was making. How much boost should I be getting from a stock turbo with a 4 inch turbo back 7.3? I think I was maxing out just over 11 or 12. I was thinking I should be getting 20 or so??

Do you have a boost fooler of any sorts? Is your truck de-fueling at WOT perhaps. Install a boost fooler (DIY work great) and check it again. I use to see 14 or so before the chip and 25 or better after with my set up.
