Stud kit, Boost PSI, and EGR delete

I had a stud kit installed about a month ago on my 04 6.0 (approx 525 hp @35 psi before) What kind of boost are any of you running after the stud kit installation? I am also seeing alot of people doing and EGR delete after the stud kit. Does this really help? I now it might help with coolant and flash boiling. Anyway looking for help on the subject. I Watched a clip on you tube of a cummins powered 250 claiming to run 116 psi.?.?.?

Yeah...525 MIGHT be at the crank....but it still sounds a little high. I'm no 6.0 expert...but wouldn't 400-425HP be a better guess?

I've heard of the crazy larry program before, supposed to be insane HP. But I never knew anyone running with it... Not that I'm doubting you but have you dyno'd the truck on a chassis dyno? Those are very impressive numbers for stock turbo and sticks. As far as boost pressures, I'm studded and my tunes still max out the stock turbo at 32psi. I'm sure the truck could handle more, but don't know if the turbo would do so hot if it was cranked up any higher. I don't think it would live very long above that.

I'd also go ahead and delete the egr.... It doesnt give you better performance, but its a decent insurance policy against having cooler problems down the road.

I can see that much boost with his tune, but i cant see that much power with just tho's mods. Look at granny's mods, she only makes 450whp

Well, On the strip the majority of the time its around 35. I have always been told that 40psi was the danger zone. Like I said "been told" I could be wrong thats why im asking. We remove the boost controller on my buddys duramax and he will push mid 40s on the strip. I'll be at the nopi burn out comp 9/9 at Atlanta race way for all who wanna see for yourself. Yeah, crazy larry is insane and also the reason im sporting a new ATS stage 3 tranny and converter.

Here's my times with only the previously listed mods
R/T .028
60'...2.730
330...6.603
1/8...9.484
mph...87.48
1000...11.943
1/4...14.000
mph...106.37


Thanks for the advice on the EGR

hellz 35 psi is what i make on stock studs, And there is a few members that make more then that on stockers. I would bet that arp studs can handle alot more boost, now the turbo will quit way before the studs do.
