ive heard 400HP is the most you want to do on a 6.0 without doing some serious upgrading

I think it is more, how fast you get to the horsepower. If you have a boost guage, you dont want to go over about 32 psi. That is the point of no return. I think if you keep it under that, you will be OK.

Does the boost gauge in the cluster on these 05's read accurately? I don't really feel like putting a boost gauge on. The pyro was enough for me.

I would not count on it, it would be better with a bigger one IMO. It is prolly not too far off though.

Um, big ones... Not sure, it prolly varies for everyone. Also depends on how much abuse they have already had.

hopefully thats 400 hp at the wheels! Vivian told me the boost gauge is very acurate, tranny temp might be off though, and theres no number on the stock one.
