New Mods

Well I'm finally done with the weekend mod. I did the ccv mod and installed a turbomaster wastegate, that was a pain in the a$$. While the truck was torn down I replaced all the old intercooler boots as well as the two from the spider to the intake manifolds. No more boost leaks and I gained about two pounds more boost. Boost gauge reads alot better, used to read from 4# to 20# now it will read from 1# to 22#. Truck runs great now I just wish I could hit 25# to 26# boost I'm wondering if it is the altitude though 4300 feet?

Hmm, I never even thought about the boots!

When I tore mine down to do the x-wheel I lost about 2 lbs of boost overall, will replacing them get me back to my 24/26psi?

Whats your elevation? All my buddies around here that run DP, PHP, Edge. we all hit the same psi +or- 1lb. Our trucks are running close to all the same mods and were all running stock turbos. I'm going to do the AIH delete and tap into that for boost to see if it goes up. No my uppipes aren't leaking, my friend just put DI uppipes on his truck with PHP tunes and did the Edge Dyno days and he dyno'd 300hp 605tq all at 22 to 23lbs boost. We also all have stock injectors.

10-4. Thats alot denser air than up where I live. I bet if I was to take it to California I'd get some high #'s.

Just don't push your turbo to bad, like over 30lbs very long. It' out of it's map range by 28lbs I think any way. You might be one of the ones I've seen on here that could get 35lbs on a stock turbo.
