Max Safe boost on stock motor

I was told that 6.0 liters can lift the head with just a programmer. I was wondering if this is a problem with the 7.3. I was planning on adding a DP tuner chip, but don't want to have head gasket problems.

What is the max safe boost on a stock motor?

Thanks

i think its like u good up to 35 or 40 psi on a 7.3 but that will take sticks (injectors) or a turbo maybe even both u will be fine with even some more mods than the dp,,, but im sure some ppl will come along and talk u into gettin a tw tony wildman chip i have no exp with them but they say they are the best...

Not an issue, you have to be buidling some serious ponies!! Above 400 I would be looking for head studs.
The stock turbo shouldn't be pished past 25 psi and you won't push it much over that without serious moding. I pull 25-26 lbs with my mods at WOT.

I'm maxing at 25-26psi with my mods. That's at WOT and at higher speeds though. It shifts at about 21, then at like 70 and up it'll go to 25 or 26 mashing it.


I know 103psi will split a 7.3's block and break/bend about everything but the cam Anybody else see that thread?
