Normal Turbo Boost

I have a 100% factory stock 2006 6.0. Can anyone tell me what normal maximum boost should be? The most my boost gage will ever register is around 22 to 23 PSI. Truck runs fine but just wondering is this normal or should boost be higher?

i run about 5-10 running empty down the highway, maybe around 12-20 loaded (5-7k) usually under wot it will hit 33-35 and hold it. I saw 40 once on the dyno! just happened to glance over and it tagged 40 maybe a hair past and then back down..it was sweet!!

I beileve the max a stock motor will make is 27 under perfect condition..

wow. the highest boost ive ever hit while running my sct is like 27lbs. and i have to accelerate very carefully to hit that lol. it has to be in 6th gear and i slooowly push on the gas so it wont downshift, and i can get it up to around 27. if i floor it the highest ive ever seen is 20-23lbs with the sct.
