Boost

How much boost should I be getting? At 60mph it runs about 3to4 . I have got on it pretty hard and the highest it has got was 15 should I be getting more than that?

Thats about what I'm getting too, and yeah, to me it seems a bit low but some here say its about normal for a stock turbo setup. Now I'm the first to admit that when it comes to diesels I have my "idiot" hat handy, but within my feeble mind, I equate more boost (up to a point) with more power and better MPG.

its a 01 Diesel it is a stock turbo except it has an X-Wheel in it and it has a banks wastegate. 4" exhaust, air intake, Edge Evoulution program set on level 3(100hp-200lbs ) Its also an auto if that makes a diff. Thats about all of the motor stuff.

Yeah I think your a little low for sure. I would think you should see 20-25 for sure. I see 22-23 with my mods on the tow safe setting which is 70hp. Check for any boost leaks. Check all your clamps to your boots and make sure they are tight.

Well boots and the one on the driver side you can see it is leaking havn't tightned it up yet but I did see a post about removing the red line off the actuator I did that and I can get it up to 23. I will tighten the boot up this weekend and see what happens.

removing the red line makes turbo spin faster... with the leak, ti makes the turbo spin even faster than that.... it will overspin the turbo.... think fo it like over-reving the motor.... it is bad....

Is the Evo your boost gauge? or do you have an individual gauge like an Autometer?

Whichever, check the hose that gets it's reading from.. kinks? Maybe something like a compression fitting/ferrule too loose or too tight?

Where is the boost gauge "tee'd" in at?

Banks wastegate, maybe the wastegate is "leaking" too much setup from the install? I dunno, just an idea.

I have the edge attitude monitor and it plugs into the MAP sensor I guess is what it is called it's just an electrical plug in it doesnt splice into any hoses. Also don't they sell a different Pedistal that gets rid of the wastegate kind of like the 6.0?
