Cool How far can I go?

How much or what is the max. boost that a stock turbo can make? By messing with the waste gate (hocus-pocus)--what is the max. it could possibly make? 2000 F350 7.3-----------------or do I need to call banks and get a different ex. housing and intake impeller. thanks would like to see 25 to 30

If you really want boost get a 38R but anyway.. your truck will cut the boost at 25 PSI anyway and i'd say unless you wanna shorten the life of your turbo then dont bother playin too much.

He said it^^^^^^^ theres alot of turbos available for that truck that will support more power and more airflow than the stock, the stock turbo only pushes 700 cfm.... Doesnt matter if you boost 25psi and see 700cfm or if you boost 30 psi and see 700cfm, its the axact same amount of air but that 700cfm will be hotter at 30 #s compared to the 700cfm at 25 psi would be so in reality youd be losing power more than likely with more boost.....
