sorry jon, not to disagree with you in a personal way...dont take me wrong..... but a wastegated turbo is capable of a lot more than 16-17. if your seeing them torn up, its not due to the boost, but do to the exhaust gas temps, which means too much fuel and not enough air. a 7.3 turbo is capable of safely going well over 20 lbs of boost, and honestly, you can not harm one with just boost alone...it takes high EGT's to really do damage.........Marc
