BOOST

I have an 01 f250 and I was wondering how many pounds of boost I can safely run with the truck as is. The only things that are done that I know of is an edge tuner, stage 2 inj., and a stage 2 turbo that is shooting 20 lbs. of boost. Can I safely go higher and if so how high?

I also have a question about turbos in general, I bought my 1999 with a second aftermarket turbo on my 7.3, and I don't know anything about them.

Also I don't have the extra guages for it, and I've been running it through fields pulling stock trailers, how do I know if I'm giving it to much power and still pull up muddy slopes?

With the stock turbo on mine I get a max of about 26 psi, just enough to set an overboost code. (Soft code, Check engine light comes on for a few seconds, goes out. Doesn't come on again untill you over boost again.)

With twin turbos... I dunno. Hope someone who knows about twins will chime in...

EGT is the most importaint, followed by Trans temp if you have an auto and tow at all. Boost is more just for information, it's not gonna have a 'redline' that you need to watch like the EGT and Trans temp would...

So you think I would be alright running like 28 to 30? Because with the edge tuner I can set it so it reduces the engine if my egt goes to high, and ive got a trans. temp gauge in the A pillar. and that ive never seen exceed 125 in 90+ weather.

it depends what turbo you have as to how much boost it can handle, pictures of whats on your truck could help us figure out what you have.

Edge is crap; no offense. And I'm not positive, but i'm pretty sure edge cant be tuned for stage II sticks/ turbo. What turbo is even on there anyways???

Make your own thread, you'll get more replies. But it's prolly an oem Garrett on there; I wouldn't worry too much. If your worried just grab a boost/pyro and worry no more.

If your turbo is stock you want to set your wastegate to no more than 27psi to keep it safe and anymore psi than that your turbo isn't efficient anymore.

I know the guy that I purchased the truck from already had the edge tuner on the, it had a DP tuner on there but thats gone. I would like to change tuners but dont know what to go with ive heard TS, DP, or custom route but i dont know. As far as what kind of stage II im gonna try to dig into it tom. and find out if it even really is its still in the garrett housing.

Dude.. custom all the way. I say go with TW.. he's a beast at what he does. Are your stage II's single or split shots? I highly doubt that edge crap is able to be tuned for sticks.
