over 40... but boost isn't everything, timing and cylinder pressure are usually what pops one

Correct me if i'm wrong but the stock turbo can only boost to under 30 efficiently right?

Ok so if I disconnected my waste gate or pinched the line I wouldn't have to worry about breaking something. I like to drive my truck more then taking care of a lawn ornament haha.

I have been told by many of the diesel boys where I live you can push about 60psi of boost on stock gaskets before they blow. Not swearing by this just throwing it out there
