More boost means more heat... with the little .84 housing on your truck the back pressure goes thru the roof with the wastegate locked down.

Boost doesn't necesarily mean more power... it just means more pressure at the gauge or sensor location. If that pressure isn't getting to the cylinders, or you don't have enough fuel to use the extra oxygen, it means nothing.

More fuel = more power
more power = more mods
more mods = more $$$$
more $$$$ = (if you figure this out let me know)

Your buddy is over spinning his charger. With the gate unhooked and not diverting excess gas through the gate the drive pressure goes way up and spins the charger a lot faster than it was meant to go. It does create more boost but its not really usable since the turbo is way out of it's efficient range. 30+ psi on a stock 7.3L charger is a quick way to kill it.
