Tune boost levels

I am trying to figure out what tune I have in my truck. It came with a tune on it when I bought it, I just cannot figure out what hp tune it is.
Therefore, if you guys could post what tunes you have, and the peak boost levels you get with that tune at WOT.
I would prefer answers from people with a stock turbo, but it is always interesting to hear others too.

I get a peak boost of 33 psi with the tune I am running.

You will not be able to get your answer based on boost levels.

Well what numbers are you getting? My brother in law has a TW and says he peaks around 40 psi with the extreme tune. I am getting a max of 33 psi, but I also have a straight pipe dumping to the right, in front of the rear tire. My EGTs do not reach above 1200 even if I lay into it for awhile.

Hmm, your best bet is to have your ECU reflashed at ford and start from scratch

Why would I do that when it has no problems? That to me seems like a waste of time and then my truck is slow. I eventually will spend the $475 for the TW chip, and I will get it re-flashed then, but now I am going to leave it.

I am just trying to find out whether it is an extreme tune or not because if it is, I will wait longer before I get a new tune. The only problem with it is the trans shifts slower than molasses.
