Boost Questions

Can anyone help me with my boost. Installed guages and boost only gets to 18 at about half throttle and 25 to the floor. Also when the tranny shifts the boosts drops to about 10. Is this normal??

boosting to about 25 isn't bad at all for stock.

What year truck, what size engine, are you running any tunes. Those will all make a difference on what your boost will be.

I would say your truck is running normal.

If you are at 25 then you have either a chip or a tuner.

With my stock late 99, all I'm seeing is 11-12 @ full throttle. Judging by your #'s I might have a leak somewhere.
