How much boost can I run with no tuner
I have a 04 (Aussie) F250 7.3L. Recently I upgraded to 38R with a turbomaster wastegate controller, 6637, straight piped the exhaust, bellowed up pipes and regulated return. However I am still running with no tuner.
My question is, due to having an adjustable wastegate, how much boost can or should I run?
I understand that gas engines need a perfect fuel/air ratio, and that diesels can run abit leaner.
Currently being stock, I have it set at 17lb boost. Would it make much difference to run maybe 20 or slightly higher?
Has anyone tried increasing boost while still running stock?
Also I understand about too much boost giving an engine light. I have a boost fooler but have not installed it yet as still running stock.
