How many pounds of boost should i make?

I have a 2000 f-350 powerstroke with these mods:
Stage 1's or 2's (Not sure, had them in there when i bought the truck)
Edge evolution on level 3(100hp)
Its a six speed standard (not sure if it matters)

and i am currently making about 18 pounds of best at my best but usually around 12-15.

Is this normal or do i have a problem?

Sb intake

you need to find out what kind of injectors you have before you get tunes. otherwise it will never run good.
