75 psi is worthless. At that point you're just superheating the air, and will have a SPECTACULAR failure on your hands. Boost is a measure of restriction in the intake. A proper setup flows a larger volume at a lower pressure. These aren't gas jobs, where boost is power.

ive always heard 40psi as a standard answer for studs. i would stick with that. but of course it will vary per truck.

as far as lowering egt's, what about a matched IC or water injection?
