How much BOOST?

How much boost should 2000 7.3L PSD produce? The truck has an aftermarket intake, 4" exhaust, map fooler, gauges and just installed a TW chip. The best I can get out of it is on street mode and it will only boost about 17psi max. Is this normal?

WW wouldn't hurt. If you don't have any surge i wouldn't worry about it unless your stock wheel takes a crap

check your IC boots it sounds like you have a boost leak

you have a leak somewhere.... i would easily see 30psi+ with my setup...

check all your hoses and check to make sure you dont have an exhaust leak on the up pipes

I hit 31 with that same setup. You have a leak. Check your IC boots, up pipes and make sure your Boost guage is working properly. Where are you tapped into for the Boost guage?
