What is the MAX Boost from Stock Turbo W/Stock tune?
Hi: I just finished installing an X-wheel and a DieselSite TurboMaster Wastegate Control. I triple checked the connection between the Compressor housing and the X-pipe (AKA Y-pipe) and the intercooler hoses. I took the truck out on several 0-60 WOT runs. The highest boost was just under 20psi even after I adjusted the TurboMaster Wastegate Control all the way down.
Is 20psi the most that I can get with a stock tune? I could get 18psi with the stock waste gate controller. I relize that the X-wheel will not increase the MAX boost psi.
