What boost levels should I see?
I am curious...
Just purchased an 00 Ex and I put a Gryphon programmer from PHP, a MBRP 4" turbo back and (just this weekend) an AFE Stage II CAI on.
Post the Gryphon and exhaust, I saw 20 Lbs boost - I am running the box 80 HP tune that Billy said I should be good with on my truck. After the AFE CAI, I saw 21-22 Lbs on the gauge. Is this what I should be seeing?
I was looking through some posts and was reading some maintenance topics. I read about possible up pipe issues. I know I still have the foil on my truck and saw some threads for foil removal.
Could someone lead me to some info on what I should look for? Does my truck have a tendance to leak pressure from the intercooler? That is power lost if so.
Thanks in advance,
2000 Excursion XLT w/ leather
Purchased stock. Now consists of PHP Gryphen Edge CTS programmer, MBRP 4" turbo back, AFE Stage II CAI and BTS valve body swap. Rear RAS load handling helpers. Helwig rear anti-roll bar. Soon to install is a 31 row 6.0 tranny cooler.
