Is it possible to build 28lbs of boost with the stock ecu tune? I have 4" exhaust with no muffler or cat which exits before rear tire and K&N filter.

My early bird with a stock PCM, 4" exhaust and 6637 intake would hit 28psi... this is with the wastegate unplugged. Popular opinion is that my truck may not be running stock sticks though... I have no idea if the PO had them modified or not, all I know is they all say AB on the solenoid

well I dont have a tuner and Im hitting 28psi with or without the wastegate connected. Id rather build 20psi because it feels like Im not making much more power with the extra psi anyways.
