What kind of boost pressures is a stock factory 7.3 power/stroke set-up going to achieve? 15-18psi?

thanks

I have the mods in my sig below. I've seen slightly over 20# as a high when pulling my 5th wheel up grades.

I have a few easy mods, nothing special, and I get about 18 -19 PSI and that is unloaded going up a hill. I get about 17 max on the flat roads.

Looking for a FORD.

Actually on a stock PSD you are going to see 15-17 psi.
