dieselsite 7.3 turbo master?

Hey everyone I was looking at buying a dieselsite turbo master mechanical turbo actuator for my 7.3 was wondering if anyone likes it? Also wanted to know what the max boost I can set it for with a stock turbo with a banks compressor wheel? or would I be better off with the banks actuator? Thanks

the turbo master is better than the banks big head hands down.

i would set the wastegate to open at 20-25 psi.

you will only see 25-30 psi max boost with banks wheel anyways.

keep in mind the stock wastegate opens at 7 psi, so it will be a huge improvement

Or what boost psi can I set which is a safe for my turbo to run daily driving at? I am currently hitting 26psi max with the stock actuator but bleeds off the boost I create after around half throttle.

Why are you concerned about how much boost your making?

The turbomaster is a good product, but dont buy it so you can brag about how much boost your making.

I don't need to brag about anything? you are the one with the 40psi boost picture which would make you a brager indeed?.....I don't see why more boost is a bad thing isn't that why we all buy these performance parts. To make our trucks run better and longer? Seeing that you have more knowledge than me I wouldn't mind knowing what is safe range for my turbo to be set at since ive heard it can handle up to 35psi. The main problem I'm haven't is my truck starts to blow off very early now with my dp tuner and ocr and it seems pointless to be making all the boost if its just blowing off. I'm just here for answers and advice help would be appreciated!

The picture is of the gauge, of the Peak recall function and warning lights that the Isspro gauges offer. I top out at about 50-52psi...

Boost is a measure of restriction. Boost has nothing to do with HP. That’s what the performance parts are for, increased HP.

The stock turbo looses efficiency at about 25psi. After that the boost to back pressure ratio goes thru the roof. The aftermarket compressor wheels help, as does larger exhaust housings.

Ideally you want a 1 to 1 ratio, for every 1# of boost, you have 1# of back pressure.

For example, my 66cm H2e- at 40# boost I am at 40-44# back pressure. At 50psi I am at about 60-62psi back pressure.

At 30# on a stock turbo you will be at 40-45psi back pressure. The main issue with this is side loading on the center section, which over time causes the turbo to fail.

Your turbo is not blowing off pressure, your turbo is surging. You will NEVER hear the waste gate open on a 7.3 turbo. Never. Not even if you put your ear down there.

Your hearing surge, and to some extent stall.

Again, you’re not blowing off any boost, at least not that your hearing. The waste gate could be weak, but you would never notice it.

Thanks man that helps out alot. So below 25 will be a good set range ? Since I will have about 30 psi back pressure? Since the stock actuator lets off way earlier than that I will notice a difference no matter what i set it to. I just haven't heard of alot of people useing the turbo master only banks so I wasn't sure if anyone likes one better. I call it Blow off but it just sounds like releasing the air .
